The use of new technology in alleviating poverty will only be achieved if people are convinced of its value and if it is easily accessible, easy to use and affordable. The aim of this project is to identify factors inhibiting or constraining the adoption of new technologies and to identify mechanisms of overcoming these constraints. This present research was done to test the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), specifically mobile phones, in providing actionable information to poor farmers, as part of the extension infrastructure in Pakistan.
