Digital Innovations in Food SystemsEvidence Clearing House
Building intelligence about digital food system interventions to inform for greater impact
The Digital Innovations in Food Systems Evidence Clearing House 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 clearing house builds on an effort first developed under the USAID initiative “Digital Development for Feed the Future.”
