Business Brief: Optimizing Systems Through Gender Inclusion

Leveraging Agricultural Service Delivery


Over the past 10 years, IDH has introduced and refined a unique market-based approach to supporting smallholder value chain development. Gender inclusion has always been an important component of this work. IDH Farmfit offers companies a data-driven methodology to analyze their service delivery models (SDM) across value chains, sectors, and geographies.

The methodology helps businesses understand how services for smallholder farmers (such as training, access to inputs, finance, and information) can be provided most efficiently and effectively, at scale, and with a sustainable return on investment.

It also includes a tailored gender risk and opportunity analysis to help companies identify ways in which they can benefit from reduced business risk, access to new market segments and additional business and impact opportunities through more gender intentional approaches.
