Digital and data-driven innovations, applications, and platforms are promising to help overcome long-standing market and policy failures and to accelerate the transformation of agriculture and the entire food system. Such innovations emerging in many countries can help to increase farm efficiency, support more equitable access to markets across the value chain and improve environmental sustainability in the agri-food sector. Digital technologies are already becoming a prominent tool within the World Bank operations, with examples of innovations and applications in all aspects of agriculture and food value chains. In this context, it is critical that we build awareness and share knowledge across World Bank staff about how data-driven and digital technologies can be a tool to support a range of operations.  What are the new types of operations needed to support the development of a thriving digital ecosystem for the agriculture and food sectors? The learning session will have three parts
