Introducing the AgriFin Gender Transformative Toolkit!
Based on seven years of innovation with partners, AgriFin has developed the Gender Transformative Toolkit as a compendium of 17 hands-on tools to help farmer-facing organizations make digital technology work for women in agriculture.The Toolkit was developed through a co-creative process with some of our strategic partners to test and refine the tools. The Toolkit is designed for organizations anywhere on the spectrum of gender transformation. View our Resource Page.
Through a new partnership with NASA, Mercy Corps is expanding our AgriFin program to connect farmers with satellite data. State-of-the-art imagery, modeling, and analysis will help small-holder farmers manage their crops and adapt to climate change.
