USAID launches inclusive AgriTech digital design toolkit

29 February 2024

Digital development solutions have become pervasive around the world, including within resilience, environment, and food security development efforts supported by USAID’s Bureau for Resilience, Environment, and Food Security (REFS).

Globally, reliance on digital solutions to do everything from looking up a weather forecast on a smartphone to automating the analysis of complicated datasets through cloud computing is set to increase further over time.

By prioritizing these factors, the toolkit guides users in fostering positive outcomes in alignment with USAID’s locally led development vision.
