Unlocking the power of digital innovation

Digital technologies such as hyperlocal weather forecasting, mobile finance, supply chain management and traceability solutions are increasingly transforming agri-food value chains in Africa. They enable farmers and other actors to produce more, better and safer food while preserving natural resources and biodiversity.
