You are cordially invited to join us for the official launching one of our flagship Project: ITIKI – the drought predicting tool for Africa’s small-scale farmers, scheduled to be held at Central University of Technology, Free State, from the 20th June - 21st June, 2019. The Unit for Research on Informatics for Droughts in Africa (URIDA) was dedicated to the advancement of scientific research and development of relevant and sustainable (ICTs) tools for predicting Africa’s droughts. We use an inter-sectoral (meteorological, hydrological, computer science, engineering, health, agriculture and planning) approach to ensure people-cantered solutions. We leverage our solutions on the following tools: Indigenous Knowledge, ICTs (informatics): Mobile phones, wireless sensor networks (Internet of Things, Big Data) and artificial intelligence.
