The Digitalisation of African Agriculture
Agricultural transformation is needed to meet the challenges of food and nutrition insecurity, climate change, youth unemployment and overall economic growth in Africa.
Using new technologies and digital innovations is critical to affecting change and driving development. It reduces barriers to trade and offers a window of opportunity to ‘digital' youth entrepreneurs to drive change. In agriculture, digital technologies could be a game changer in boosting productivity, water efficiency and resilience to climate change.
The Digitalisation of African Agriculture report from CTA and Dalberg Advisors is a first attempt to consolidate evidence and provide proof of impacts and the knowledge on digitalisation of agriculture in Africa to guide practitioners, investors and policymakers in this sector.
