Myanmar’s smartphone usage rates are growing rapidly.

Mobile Services & Technical Extension

Mobile services such as extensions (agronomic advice), price information, marketplaces, traceability and financial services have the potential to transform farmers’ access to information and the market. However, lack of clear regulations regarding data collection, use and privacy cause uncertainty for mobile service providers, inhibiting their growth.

Activities:

  • Working on solutions to make mobile application stores more accessible for farmers.

  • Promoting digital literacy and awareness of mobile potential among government and extension agencies.

  • Promoting awareness of the changing landscape of digital solutions for farmers across Southeast Asia, and mapping the needs of Myanmar.
