The session will leverage learnings from AgriPath to demonstrate how Human Centred Design (HCD) can be applied to design inclusive Digital Advisory Services (DAS). Our approach to inclusion goes beyond women and youth to also include vulnerable farming communities that are traditionally excluded because of factors such as low literacy levels, cost of data and smart devices, poor connectivity and lack of/ limited mobile infrastructure.
