The identification and adaptation of agri-based digital technologies that are suitable in a Western African context will be explored. Linkages between the research community, industry and policy actors will be strengthened, and the policy environment will be improved to enable the scaling of agri-business digital innovation and to support technology transfer processes. The uptake of digital technologies will enable farmers and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), including women and youth, to produce and market their goods and services more easily and efficiently.
