AgriPath at ICTforAg 2023

Catalysing Digital Inclusion through Human Centered Design

We leveraged the AgriPath learnings, to lead a session that demonstrated how Human Centered Design (HCD) can be applied to design inclusive Digital Advisory Services (DAS). Our approach to inclusion goes beyond women and youth to also include vulnerable farming communities that are traditionally excluded because of factors such as low literacy levels, cost of data and smart devices, poor connectivity and lack of/ limited mobile infrastructure.  

Our session focused on the farmbetter digital extension app, to share our HCD journey across the 5 AgriPath implementing countries (Tanzania, Uganda, Burkina Faso, India, Nepal) and highlight key design, content and user interface considerations that influence the uptake of digital solutions among women, youth and other vulnerable communities. Through our experience, we aim to provide other digital solution implementers with practical, evidence based approaches to catalyze digital inclusion.
