Digital agricultural support services are being developed at an increasingly fast pace. This is a relatively new sector that has the potential to significantly influence how we organise food systems, from farm to fork. With that it can significantly contribute to SDG2: zero hunger and other Sustainable Development Goals such as SDG8 (by creating new jobs). Digitalisation is also mentioned as an important means to contribute to action track 3 of the upcoming Food Systems Summit: Boost nature-positive production. And an increasing number of initiatives are working to increase the understanding, and contribute to the development, of these digital services.
Pledge to action sprints
Members join our ‘pledge-to-action sprints’ to collectively remove barriers. Each sprint has three steps, which will be facilitated by Netherlands Food Partnership and Bopinc. The first Pledge to action sprint is 'Narrowing the digital divide'. The second Pledge to action sprint focused on 'Commercial viability'.
