IDH promotes the use of technology in achieving value chain sustainability. By advising and convening stakeholders on technology use cases, IDH reduces sourcing cost, improves farmer engagement, reduces operational risk and achieves profitable scale in smallholder inclusive business models.
The overall objective of this assignment is to develop a practical, easy to use, a standard methodology to identify opportunities for service providers to digitalize their businesses and take advantage of already existing high potential tech use-cases. IDH Farmfit business support staff and some program staff will be equipped with this methodology in order to advise IDH’s partners. The specific objectives are:
- To create a high-level database of the current tech use-cases that exist in agriculture value chains;
- To create a methodology (including user guide) that can easily identify the suitable tech use-cases for service providers to invest in.
