Lack of trust and transparency in input value chains is at the root of low adoption of new agricultural technology and hence the persistence of severe yield gaps in our target geographies. Lack of transparency in the provenance of food is hampering the valorization of hidden characteristics such as sustainable intensification practices, and bio-fortification and is sustaining food safety concerns around for instance aflatoxins. Digital trust and transparency technology solutions are experiencing rapid uptake in high-income countries. In order to make these technologies accessible and useable in dynamic and more complex agri-food systems in our target geographies requires an open and inclusive testing and learning platform where proofs-of-concept and pilots, both the use cases that succeeded and those that failed, are showcased based on rigorous scientific research on what worked or didn’t work and why in terms of the technologies, the business models, the partnerships, the institutional arrangements and governance structures. Once these are tested and evaluated using rigorous scientific research they can form a body of pre-competitive knowledge to accelerate and enhance the uptake of digital trust and transparency solutions to address the wicked challenges in our target geographies.

CIMMYT, CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture, CTA and The Fork are developing a Digital Trust and Transparency Technology Testing and Learning Platform. In this session key partners of this initiative will explain the concepts and there will be open discussion on how this can help you navigate dynamic complex agri-food system challenges using technology within a socio-economic ecosystem.
