The Syngenta Foundation and EY believe that digital solutions can and should serve smallholders. With the right enabling factors, these tools can help farmers around the world improve their incomes, livelihoods and resilience.

With EY's support, we've published a paper asking "How can digital solutions help to feed a growing world?" It's an introduction with practical case studies. 

In it, we address three questions:

• How can organizations make better decisions on how to support smallholders, using digital solutions to do so?

• How do digital solutions support sustainable agriculture, and what are the broader benefits to smallholders and their communities?

• What's the best way to increase solutions' reach and impact ?

We don’t have all the answers. But we hope the paper will help key organizations to ask the right questions. We also hope that the answers stimulate enterprises using digital technologies for sustainable agriculture.

Our over-arching aim is to improve smallholders' livelihoods, while increasing global food security. 

We greatly welcome your feedback on this paper, the tools it mentions, and our own work in this field.
