Webinar | Digital solutions for smallholder farmers: the challenges and opportunities of COVID-19

Presentations of the webinar “Digital solutions for smallholder farmers: the challenges and opportunities of COVID-19” on Thursday August 27, are available as recording and downloads. This was the second webinar in a series of three focusing on “Digital opportunities in the response to COVID-19 in Asian & Africa agriculture”.

The Community of Pratice 'Digital Solutions' is set up to exchange learning across practitioners on the use of digital solutions in COVID-19 response, recovery and resilience in agriculture. The webinar series aims at communicating those learnings to a broader and interested audience, also inviting participants to sign up for the CoP.
