Power at the Edge:
How DLTs empower farmers
and make food safer

A one-hour live event
 
8 September, 2020
9am PDT /  12pm EDT / 5pm BST / 6pm CEST
 

In our first episode about Distributed Ledgers, we discussed the technological challenges that must be met before they can become the backbone of a post-industrial economy. However, compelling applications with real-world impact ARE being developed.

In this special interview with Genevieve Leveille, Founder and CEO of AgriLedger, we will dive into AgriLedger’s project with the World Bank and the Government of Haiti to use DLT to empower farmers.

Farmers are at the edge of the food supply chain. With supply chain transparency they can negotiate better prices and produce to meet demand. With better traceability, food safety can be improved. The valuable lessons learned by AgriLedger also extend to other types of supply chains.

We will discuss:

  • How technology addresses governance problems
  • Information scarcity in (food) supply chains
  • How DLTs create transparency and traceability
  • Improving demand forecasting and pricing  
  • Practical implementation challenges
  • Managing stakeholder relationships
  • Results achieved for farmers and buyers
  • Lessons learned for other supply chains
  • Future possibilities for DLTs
