AfricaRice is introducing its new mobile website for any mobile device users with internet connectivity.
The main objective of the AfricaRice mobile website is to raise public awareness about the relevance and value of research-for-development (R4D) activities of AfricaRice and its partners to help reduce poverty, improve food security, and improve the environment in the continent.
The new mobile-friendly website will provide smartphone users with easier access to current updates and latest information on jobs, news, publications, videos, photos and podcasts.
The site has links to AfricaRice social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, Blog, and a customized newspaper built from articles, blog posts, videos and photos selected by AfricaRice and CGIAR Consortium relating to agricultural research and development.
“This is an exciting product developed by our Marketing & Communications team,” said Dr Sam Bruce-Oliver, Director of Partnership and Capacity Strengthening. “Our partners can now have up to date information from the Center wherever they are. But more importantly, as we commemorate today the World Environment Day 2014, we are happy that AfricaRice is moving towards an eco-friendly website.”
