Global Research Consortium Partners with Mobile Sector Leader DIAL to Unlock Digital Agriculture Innovation

How can mobile network data help build stronger, more resilient food systems worldwide?

This is the overarching question the CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture and the Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) are striving to answer through a newly-formed partnership.

The two organizations have committed to bring together CGIAR’s food security research capabilities and DIAL’s technical leadership and experience as a liaison with the mobile sector. Together they aim to use mobile network data to create new cross-sector collaborations, engage the mobile sector to explore and support digital agricultural projects and initiatives, and to foster innovation designed to effectively integrate mobile data into food security research.
