Innovation Call: Advancing digital innovation in Latin America

This Innovation Call is a key activity of the project, “Advancing Digital Innovation for Smallholder Farmers in Latin America”, which is funded by IDB Lab, the innovation laboratory of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) Group, executed by Incofin Foundation and hosted by the GSMA.

The Call will select up to 14 entities offering solutions that use agricultural technologies and digital tools (agritech) to enhance the profitability of smallholder farmers in six Latin American markets, improving their resilience to climate change. Additionally, this Innovation Call encourages solutions that aim to promote gender inclusivity.

Selected entities will fall into one of two groups and receive grants to fund technical assistance (TA) projects aimed at developing and/or scaling agritech solutions tailored to the conditions, needs and potential of smallholder farmers. The eligible countries for this Innovation Call are Bolivia, Colombia, El Salvador, Honduras, Paraguay and Peru.
