The impact of COVID-19 on digital agriculture SMEs in Kenya

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a test of the fragility of the global food and agricultural systems. Particularly, the pandemic heavily weighed down the agri-food systems in developing countries. Nonetheless, the outcomes of the pandemic are creating robust opportunities geared towards the sustainability and resilience of the global agri-food systems. In the agri-food value chain this surge in demand has accelerated the growth of digital agriculture SMEs. The foundation of this research project is built on exploring how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted digital agriculture SMEs in agribusiness value chains of frontier markets through measuring things like disparities (e.g., gender differences) in subscriptions, the impact of COVID-19 on sales and turnover of SMEs, and the socio-economic and political environment.
