D4AG Insights

D4Ag scaling and sustainability in Asia

Strengthening digitalization policies and pathways in Asia
Starting from the CTA heritage on digitalisation in Africa around a year ago, Digital Agri Hub has extended its reach to other parts of the world. To engage the D4Ag network in Asia, a dialogue was organized with stakeholders to discuss ways to improve on two main challenges for digital agriculture: sustainability and scaling.

In our blog on this dialogue, we discuss country level experiences on the Asian continent and emerging insights on the importance of a well-functioning multi-stakeholder ecosystem and strengthening required policies and pathways to bring together governments, private organisations and development partners.

Towards a global data ecosystem 

The Digital Agri Hub journey in building a global overview of digitalisation in agriculture in low- and middle-income countries
Digital Agri Hub is now one year on its way in tracking digital solutions for agriculture world-wide. Building on the heritage of CTA, we now publish information on 700+ solutions in low- and middle-income countries, offering a wealth of information to investors, donors and other stakeholders in the sector. We have just published a blog on our experiences and challenges on that journey, and of course all information is provided through our digital solutions dashboard. To allow service and solution providers to add their solutions and support then in keeping their information up-to-date, we are now testing a data entry facility that will be published online on short term.

FOCUS on smart farming

Smart Farming for Smallholders

Smart farming solutions can play an important role in helping smallholder farmers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) increase their productivity and resilience to disaster by opening access to assets and mechanisation, optimising the use of inputs, labour and natural resources and reducing crop and animal losses and waste.

Our  assessment of Smart Farming Solutions for Smallholders explores the emergence of smart farming solutions in LMICs and identifies opportunities to scale these solutions, providing valuable insights to sectoral stakeholders.

Digital Agri Hub

We monitor digital developments for innovative agricultural solutions and provide data, insights, and impact metrics to steer investments towards agricultural transformation in low- and middle-income countries.

"An inclusive, digitally-enabled agri-food system driven by emerging innovation boosts productivity, profitability and sustainability"

The Digital Agri-Hub is at the forefront of scaling up D4Ag solutions, catalysing investments, transforming the existing agri-food system and ensuring a gender-inclusive D4Ag landscape by:

  • Providing a reliable source of emerging and innovative D4Ag technologies across the entire agrifood system
  • Building and strengthening the capacity of D4Ag actors through tailor-made training and advisory services
  • Creating and sustaining a two-way matchmaking platform, which provides impact-based data insights on D4Ag solutions for potential investors and stakeholders on D4Ag solutions
  • Supporting the existing D4Ag ecosystem through knowledge brokering and stakeholder engagement
  • Driving towards a climate resilient agri-food system through sustainable D4Ag innovations
To drive the vision of a sustainable D4Ag ecosystem, Wageningen University and Research (WUR) is leading the Digital Agri Hub for its first 3.5 years, in partnership with GSMA, Grameen Foundation and the Netherlands Advisory Board on Impact Investing (NAB). It is co-funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
The Digital Agri Hub builds on the extensive heritage left by the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) on digitalisation for agriculture, targeting smallholder farmers across Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific. In particular, CTA’s Digitalisation of African Agriculture report (2018-2019) and the underlying data have been an important inspiration and starting point.
