Keywords: ICT, Agricultural Extension and Advisory Services, AEAS, learning processes
The objective of this PhD thesis is to understand the extent to which NICT-based EAS can impact advisors’ as well as producers’ organisations and producers’ practices. This calls for an analysis of the changes induced by new agricultural advisory services using ICT on EAS design, and ultimately on farmers’ learning processes. The study will focus primarily on initiatives developed in West Africa, and more especially those in Burkina Faso.
