Digital Green is a not-for-profit international development organization that uses an innovative digital platform for community engagement to improve lives of rural communities across South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. We partner with local public, private and civil society organizations to share knowledge on improved agricultural practices, livelihoods, health, and nutrition, using locally produced videos and human mediated dissemination. In a controlled evaluation, the approach was found to be 10 times more cost-effective and uptake of new practices seven times higher compared to traditional extension services.

DLEC is generating evidence that will influence decision makers to implement improvements towards locally-relevant, cost-effective, and pluralistic agricultural extension systems. To accomplish this, we play a coordination role in the extension advisory services (EAS) ecosystem through conducting a global and many local communities of practice (CoP) comprised of USAID missions, country governments, public and private extension advisory service providers, rural civil society organizations, and country research institutes.We are more than one year onto implementing this 5 year project.
