Universities offering scientific agricultural programs are preparing the next generation of agricultural workers. The Caribbean’s agricultural sector employs over 200,000 people that can be trained in how to use the latest technology.
AgriNeTT, a University of the West Indies project funded by the UWI-Trinidad & Tobago Research and Development Impact (RDI) Fund, is an example of the collaboration taking place between technology, agriculture and research professionals within the Caribbean. AgriNeTT has been recognized by the 2016 World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) for its contribution to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
