FAO launches a subprogramme on Global Network of Digital Agriculture Innovation Hubs

January 25, 2022

The Food and Agricultural Organization, funded by the Flexible Multi-Partner Mechanism, launch a new subprogramme on the Global Network of Digital Agriculture Innovation Hubs. The GNDAH starts with 4 pilot countries, Dominica, Grenada, Ethiopia, & Morocco, and will run until 2023.

The FAO & country institutions created a group of in-country innovation hubs to assess each country’s digital development and capacities of partners, such as government institutions, academia, NGOs, and the private sector.

The subprogramme will support countries in planning a national digital agriculture model to satisfy local agriculture, forestry, and fisheries priorities and strengthen public-private partnerships. It will help farmers & value chain actors, prioritize the youth & women aspiring to improve their skills and advance agri-food sector digital innovation.

Even though the countries differ in size, culture, economy, and priorities, these countries can exchange several collaborations and lessons. The Global Network Hub Subprogramme will make this possible through partnerships with governments, developmental organizations, research institutes, farmer organizations, and women & youth organizations. The countries will create digital strategies and tackle challenges in digital literacy and gender issues while digitally transforming the agri-food systems.

These four pilot countries can contribute knowledge, lessons learned, and new perspectives within a global context. The information gathered from local and international organizations would decrease the digital divide and create innovative solutions due to the support from FMM Resource Partners.
