Digital Food Systems

Evidence Clearing House

The Digital Food Systems Evidence Clearinghouse  aims to showcase all kinds of digital tools – not just big data – that will help practitioners easily identify mature technologies and entry-points for them in agri-food systems, and to monitor how emergent technologies are evolving on the innovation frontier. The Platform will highlight both Interventions and Evidence on the food system.

The Clearinghouse builds on an effort first developed under the USAID initiative “Digital Development for Feed the Future.”

Digital interventions in food systems appear every day in the press, and the sector is rapidly digitizing. However, the base of rigorous evidence of impact is still relatively thin. We seek to remedy this; by consolidating evidence and monitoring trends in digital interventions, we aim to build more quantifiable intelligence that can be used by development agencies, potential investors, and the innovators themselves. Evidence is the critical piece needed to help these innovations find a path to scale.
