The COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges (and new opportunities for innovation) for public benefit programs across the United States. In this talk, teammates from ideas42’s Economic Justice focus area will discuss projects in partnership with two state agencies that administer the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (better known as WIC). WIC provides food, breastfeeding support, nutritional counseling, and education to families with children under age 5 who face economic hardship. Through our work in WIC, we will explore important insights to consider when developing and implementing a new innovative approach during the pandemic and beyond. While these insights are most relevant for program administrators, they are also useful for anyone innovating in human service delivery more broadly.
Time: 2-3 pm EDT

Covid-19 has brought to the spotlight the need for establishing a connected digital agriculture infrastructure that is robust, inclusive, and benefits the farmers. While markets globally were disrupted due to lockdown, the agriculture sector showed tremendous resilience and the reason for it can be attributed to the digitization brought about by the government and AgTech startups in recent years.
India has seen a sharp jump in the number of startups since 2016 in the AgTech domain, with a NASSCOM report in 2019 stating that there are more than 400 active AgTech startups in India.
The webinar will focus on highlighting how AgTech startups can build on this momentum and the possible challenges they might face in creating an AgriStack for the entire ecosystem.
