The 21st Century Agricultural Education and Information Systems or "WorldAgInfo" Project was an initiative funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and led by Albert R. Mann Library at Cornell University from May to December 2007. The WorldAgInfo Design Team was charged by the Gates Foundation with exploring the landscape of agricultural education and information systems in Asia and Africa, and what role new collaborative information technologies might play in positively transforming those.

Project activities included consultations with staff of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; site visits to South Asia and Africa by members of the project's Design Team; two international workshops convened in Ithaca, New York, and Livingstone, Zambia, to bring together policy makers, scholars, instructional technology and curriculum specialists, and private sector representatives; literature reviews on topics relevant to smallholder agriculture in Africa and South Asia; and smallholder interviews conducted on site in India, Sri Lanka, Mali and Zambia by agriculture undergraduate and graduate students. The materials provided here represent a portion of those outputs. Additional materials and an archive of the project web site can be found on the Internet Archive here.
