A Motswana innovator, Thato Supang, has created an online system that will ease farmers’ problems that arise from climate change and drought.

The online platform, known as Agricultural Marketing and Early Warning Information (AMEWI) will provide information that farmers normally travel to agricultural offices to obtain. Supang said the platform would also link agriculture stakeholders to, among other things, markets, innovative ways of farming and suppliers. The online system will also provide a meteorological service.

“Youth should be seen as a value not a burden because they can accelerate economic, an to some extent, agricultural growth,” she said.
