I had the great pleasure of meeting Ednah Karamagi (@ednahkaramagi) during the KM4Dev Brussels meeting. She is the Executive Director of BROSDI or Busoga Rural Open Source and Development Initiative. I was fascinated by this initiative from Uganda as it was an excellent example of two-way knowledge and information flow - from the governments to the farmers and vice versa. The organization feeds information using information and communication technology (ICT) to farmers who further disseminate the information to other farmers. BROSDI also gathers information from the same farmers and pushes it up to the government. Listen to Ednah explain the flow in detail.
The one question that many participants from the huddle asked was "why aren’t we replicating examples such as BROSDI in other African countries?"
