Digital Innovation Challenge
The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) with partners in Uganda has put out a Call for the following Digital Innovation Challenges for agriculture in Uganda: (1) How might we build a “farmer loyalty program"? (2) How might we improve the management of agriculture value chains? (3) How might we enable farmers to access and share farm extension workers, tools and equipment?
About this Project
Agriculture is fundamental to Uganda’s economy. Today, technology presents an opportunity to transform agriculture through Commercialization, Aggregation, and Agri-business. Technology can ensure efficient operation of the value chain activities from production to processing, logistics, warehousing; increasing access to market information for better decision making. It is against this general background that the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) in partnership with the Innovation Village, Mukwano (AK Oils and Fats Ltd), National Union of Coffee Agribusinesses and Farm Enterprises (NUCAFE), Welthungerhilfe and MTN Uganda are seeking for innovators with interest in addressing the following challenges for developing sustainable digital solutions that will transform agriculture and improve farmer livelihoods in Uganda. CHALLENGE 1: How might we build a “farmer loyalty program"? CHALLENGE 2: How might we improve the management of agriculture value chains? CHALLENGE 3: How might we enable farmers to access and share farm extension workers, tools and equipment? Read more about this invitation for proposals here: https://cda.ug/i4a/
