Under the Food Security Project in Northern Sudan, FAO Sudan will soon begin a deployment of Esoko’s web and mobile Market Information System as the FAMIS (Food and Agriculture Market Information System) portion of the overall Food Security project. This project is being implemented through the local ministries in the fifteen northern Sudanese states. The service will be known as Esook, ‘sook’ being the Arabic word for market, with ‘e’ added for ‘electronic’. These are some of the character behind it.
