Launched in 2015, the Challenge App Africa is a competition organized by RFI and France 24 aimed at developing concrete digital solutions by Africans that are in the general interest for the continent.
Innovation at the service of sustainable development
Facing the context of global warming, technological innovation offers vast possibilities with regard to the economic growth and agricultural prductivity of Africa.
Endowed with the largest area of uncultivated arable land in the world, a young population and abundant natural resources, sub-Saharan Africa enjoys unparalleled advantages that would allow to double or even triple its current agricultural productivity. To this end, the digital transformation of the agri-food sector is essential.
The 7th edition of Challenge App Africa aims to support the development of digital and mobile solutions offering farmers a better yield, to take part in the food self-sufficiency and respond to the challenges of global warming by putting forward a sustainable agriculture.
The main objective of the context will therefore be the creation of a digital application, website, SMS service or any other form of digital service (Push-Wap, MMS, Wap et Web, Audiotel…) serving agriculture.
