A CGIAR Inspire Challenge Rapid Response Grant project survey of more than 1,000 men and women farmers in Odisha, India finds disparate gender dynamics in demand for and decision-making around agricultural credit.
The Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT published a first-of-its-kind study about the global divide in data-driven farming.
The Inspire Challenge project, “Seeing is believing,” leverages advances in information and communications technologies and data processing in order to improve insurance services for smallholder farmers.
