This video from NetHope member Catholic Relief Services (CRS) illustrates how the spread of two major cassava diseases (cassava mosaic disease and cassava brown streak disease) is threatening the food security of millions of farmers in central and east Africa. CRS and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) developed a consortium with NetHope, Intel, Agilix and FormRouter, to provide an e-learning solution to help farmers prevent the spread of the diseases. This 5-year project aims to get disease-resistant cuttings to more than one million farming families in Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda.
