Episode 51

Blockchain technology is gaining supporters in Sub-Saharan Africa, and advocates say it could have a growing role in agriculture. This week, our reporter Halima Athumani investigates how blockchain can provide digital identities, access to credit, land and inputs for farmers in Africa.

This is the third and final episode in our AgriAfrica mini-series, where we’ve been digging into the continent’s agricultural infrastructure to find out more about food loss, food safety, and how to make food more accessible.
