Digitize Rural-Urban Agriculture
#agritech #africanfarming #sustainableagriculture
Climate change, COVID-19 and conflicts challenge us to innovatively rethink our food systems. Ensuring just-food supplies in African countries requires smart systems and digital technologies for farmers to boost productivity, make food systems more resilient and thus contribute to the sustainable development of cities and communities. Does your idea have what it takes to contribute to solving this challenge? With our partner Atos, we’re looking for scalable digital ideas to boost a smart and sustainable system for urban food supplies on the African continent.
