On 22 and 23 March, ChainPoint will be at the “Sustainability for smallholders” event in London to share knowledge and solutions how to engage with smallholder farmers, improve sustainability and their livelihood. Smallholder farmers play an important role in many sectors, from food till cotton. It is estimated that up to 70% of the world’s food is produced by smallholder farmers. Building supply security and resilience is vital in ensuring the future supply of many commodities. The “Sustainability for smallholders” conference is a multi-stakeholder event and will address the major risks for smallholder farmers across agricultural sectors, and focus on how to create scalable solutions to tackle future supply chain vulnerabilities.
ChainPoint has already developed a number of successful software platforms to facilitate the necessary data gathering and knowledge sharing that is required in such initiatives. For example, the Better Cotton Initiative supports more than 600.000 farmers in the continuous improvement of cotton farming practices. And the 3S Sustainable Nut System, which collects quality, quantity and origin data from cashew farmers in Ghana and Ivory Coast, is equally leading the way towards real quality improvements on the ground, right down to smallholder level. Both the Better Cotton Initiative and 3S rely on ChainPoint every single day to manage their data gathering, analysis, and reporting needs.
