He further explained that the use of ICT tools to facilitate awareness creation, promote behavioural change among knowledge users such as farmers or processors, and facilitate the adoption of technologies could contribute to the success of delivery efforts.

He noted that IITA had used ICTs for precision agriculture, digitalisation of the research process, knowledge sharing, and service delivery through tailor-made digital tools, data repositories, and web platforms, which many of these developments emanated from various research for development projects and are designed to fit the project purpose with scope for broader applications.
