CCARDESA aspires to be a regional knowledge hub that facilitates the sharing of agricultural information and research across the SADC region. Thus, CCARDESA has incorporated knowledge, information and communication as one of the key Thematic Focal Areas of the organisation.
CCARDESA undertakes programmes and projects that promote knowledge generation, knowledge management and dissemination of agricultural research through the utilization of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), among others. CCARDESA strives to ensure that credible information is made accessible to all interested stakeholders from policy makers to smallholder farmers.
