Digital Traceability in Agriculture: Does It Improve Productivity and Marketing of Farm Produce?
The benefits of traceability are widely recognized. Yet for smallholder farmers in developing countries, especially farmers producing horticultural and other fresh foods, traceability requirements can represent barriers to trade.
UNCDF in partnership with Hamwe East Africa has developed a digital traceability platform that is enabling smallholder farmers in rural communities in Northern Uganda to adopt global traceability standards and practices. This case study shows the approach UNCDF and partners are taking in this process.
