Connected Agriculture: The Role of Mobile in Driving Efficiency and Sustainability in the Food and Agriculture Value Chain

In this 39-page report, Vodafone and Accenture, working in collaboration with Oxfam GB, identify 12 opportunities for mobile phone technology to increase agricultural income and productivity. According to the report, mobile communications can help to meet the challenge of feeding an estimated 9.2 billion around the globe by 2050. The 12 specific opportunities explored in this study could increase agricultural income by around US$138 billion across 26 of Vodafone’s markets in 2020. This report was produced to stimulate the engagement between mobile operators, governments, non-governmental organisations, and businesses to realise these opportunities and explore others. Link:
