Understanding the world requires data to be analysed. The same applies for supply chains. If you want to improve the quality and sustainability of supply chains, you will need to gather data from all stakeholders in the supply chain and analyse it in order to make the best-informed decisions.
One of the leading data scientists is Hans Rosling from the Gapminder Foundation. The purpose of the Gapminder Foundation is to fight ignorance as there are many misinterpretations about many global KPIs such as population growth, illiteracy, economic growth etc... In the YouTube video below, the correlation between population growth, education, extreme poverty, smallholder farmers and CO2 emissions is explained.
70% of all food in the world is produced by smallholder farmers.
Supply chain data & smallholder farmers
In the supply chains where ChainPoint’s platform is actively used, we see the correlation between, for example, training, data analysis and livelihood improvements for smallholder farmers. In order to secure future supplies, smallholder farmers must become more efficient, more sustainable and better-trained farmers, so they can increase quality and yield. Improved quality and yield will improve the livelihood of smallholder farmers, enabling them to provide better for their family and send their children to school instead of working on the land.
Webinar on smallholder farmers
On 28 April we organized a webinar which demonstrated how technology can support the process of training, measuring and adjusting. "How to engage and connect with smallholder farmers, securing future supply and improving livelihood and sustainability"
