Notes:
5 pages., Via website., This project learning brief describes the lessons learned from the INFORNET (Development of an Effective Information Flow Network) project carried out by the Zambia Agriculture Research Institute (ZARI) with support from IICD. ICT was used to improve access to the knowledge generated by agricultural researchers and transmitted to farmers by extension workers. Improved research-extension linkages, as well as enhanced communication among researchers in different regions, were central to ZARI's INFORNET project.
