Patricia Lago, Anna Bon, and Wendelien Tuyp received a grant from the Amsterdam Sustainability Institute (ASI) on food security in developing countries. 

The objectives of the project are:

  • Goal-ICT: to focus on the ICT needs, and frame the sustainability concerns relevant for designing context-sensitive solutions for food security in developing countries.
  • Goal-Social: to study the policy context and constraints, and aim at formulating a policy that helps optimizing the aids meant to help sustainable livelihoods for farmers at the local level.

This research will pilot the application of an interdisciplinary approach called “Decision Maps” so far applied to ICT solutions for Urban Futures, on the question of how to improve the seed production in Mali in a sustainable
way. It does so based on locally-collected information from the farmers and farmer organizations.

Congrats!
