The overall objective of this project is to conduct a comprehensive review of the key drivers, hypotheses and indicators relevant in the area of Service Delivery to Smallholders. Using IDH’s Service Delivery Model (SDM) methodology, Farmfit analyzes the business models of companies providing services to smallholder farmers. Using the insights of the analyses, we design and co-invest in innovation projects to further improve or scale the farmer engagement model of the companies. IDH Farmfit Intelligence gathers data from our business support activities in the form of indicators and seeks to develop and share data-driven insights to broaden the impact of our SDM work.
IDH Farmfit Intelligence continuously reviews its methodology to ensure alignment with the wider goals and agendas of the sector. As a result, IDH Farmfit Intelligence seeks to hire a consultant to review the state of the art in this field, identify priority indicators (with corresponding definitions and guidance), and review the relevance of existing indicators.
