Digital technologies have the potential to improve lives in low and middle-income countries by broadening access to information, goods, and services. However, many digital solutions - particularly in the world of agriculture, resilience, nutrition and water, security, sanitation and hygiene (WSSH) - are designed, developed and deployed in silos. Fragmented digital solutions formulated in silos can result in poor user experiences, entrenched information blockages, constrained uptake and artificially limited scope.
Genesis Analytics partnered with USAID and DAI under the Digital Frontiers initiative to formulate a practical guidance note to address this challenge. The note equips USAID mission staff, advisors and implementing partners working in agriculture, resilience, nutrition, and WSSH to deliver digital solutions that holistically meet a variety of program participant needs, by breaking the right silos in solution design, deployment and delivery.
