Growing Her Future: How digital farming can reduce gender divides in agriculture.

Posted on 03/31/2022

Digital agriculture solutions help struggling farmers and the planet. But women, who suffer most from climate change, are being left behind. As Women's History Month came to a close, a panel of experts from Grameen Foundation shared some of our solutions--and what they've learned--about the most effective, empowering ways to close the gender gaps and become resilient, climate-smart farmers.

Women are often seen as victims of climate change, but they can also be active and effective agents of adaptation and mitigation, especially if we put the power of technology in their hands.

During the event, Bobbi Gray and Alfred Yeboah shared Joyce's experience with our digital agriculture services, and the success she's found as a result.

We're also producing innovative tools for smallholder farmers in Africa and Asia, empowering women farmers in India who have been left out of farmer producer organizations, and creating pathways to scale our digital agriculture services.

Through these programs, Grameen and its partners are working thoughtfully and holistically to empower women farmers across the world to grow successful, climate-smart crops and overcome challenges.

Empower smallholder farmers to lift themselves out of poverty.
