Around the world, millions of farmers work tirelessly to feed their families and communities. But in spite of their efforts, over 42% of the food these farmers produce is never consumed. Instead, it is lost during harvest, or on the journey from farm to market. The consequences are immense – closing this gap has the potential to feed one billion people and improve livelihoods for farmers.
For their fifth Amplify challenge, IDEO is calling on entrepreneurs, NGOs, designers and social innovators to develop solutions that reduce waste and improve the livelihoods of small scale farmers. They are focusing on a few key areas where new solutions can have a big impact, including: improving access to markets, ensuring farmers have access to relevant information, using technology in new ways and financial services.
