Digital solutions for small-scale farming: Fostering climate resilient and low carbon agrifood systems

Digital solutions can provide information required to improve the implementation of various agricultural development activities, including securing of land rights, improving access to financial services and leveraging various cultivation technologies. An information asymmetry that small-scale farmers are facing, related to weather forecasts and market prices, can also be tackled with the help of digital solutions. This second focus brief complements the first brief and provides an overview of how digital technologies are categorized and presents digital solutions along the agricultural value chain. Practical entry points  are proposed for successful implementation of digitalization.
