Digital Frontiers works with the Bureau for Resilience and Food Security to build upon the effective Mission support model developed under Digital Development for Feed the Future (D2FTF). This includes supporting various USAID/Missions to better understand, work with, and support digital agriculture ecosystems to meet Missions’ development objectives. 

At the request of the USAID Sahel Regional Office (SRO) in Dakar, the USAID Bureau of Food Security and the U.S. Global Development Lab conducted an assessment of the current and potential use of digital tools in order to enhance the reach and impact of the SRO’s food security and resilience activities under the new U.S. Government Global Food Security Strategy country plan for Niger. The assessment was broadened to include USAID/Burkina Faso given the Mission’s joint resilience programming and relevance as a USAID resilience focus country. This report covers the second part of the joint assessment, which included desk research and field research conducted in Niger in 2019.
