Smallholder farmers operate amidst numerous shocks that threaten their livelihoods including effects of climate change such as proliferation of disease incidences and pest infestation e.g., the recent desert locust invasion, droughts and floods and pandemics like Covid-19. The booming digital technology era provides a viable pathway of building farmer resilience against the shocks. Mercy Corps AgriFin would like to welcome participants to the 6th Annual Learning Event (ALE) scheduled to take place on November 22, 2022, in Nairobi, Kenya.
The 6th AgriFin Annual Learning Event themed “Developing smallholder farmer resilience in the face of global issues” will create a perfect learning forum to share tested digital technologies and practices that strengthen resilience of smallholder farmers. The event will consist of keynote speeches, presentations, launches, demonstrations, panel discussions, quizzes and a full day marketplace where great agriculture related innovative solutions will be on display.
