15 Aug 4th INATBA Podcast: Discover AGROS – Empowering Rural Producers in the Digital Economy Through Blockchain Innovation
In May, the Social Impact and Sustainability Working Group-SISWG of the International Association for Trusted Blockchain Applications-INATBA launched a new podcast series focused on ReFi and financial inclusion. The series is aimed at highlighting the potential of blockchain and DLT in addressing social and sustainability issues such as climate change, poverty, and inequality, among others covered by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In this episode, we spotlight AGROS, an innovative company, which pioneers the fusion of rural producer organisations and the digital economy through the use of Blockchain technology. With a Digital Identity securely encrypted, they bridge the gap between rural producers and the many opportunities presented by the digital economy. They give rural producers the power to demonstrate their work digitally worldwide and be proactive in the promotion of their development. What makes them unique is their direct relationship with their farming community partners, bypassing the need for technical literacy and empowering rural organisations to garner credibility on the world stage.
The SISWG’s primary mission is to raise awareness about the potential of blockchain for social impact and sustainability. To achieve this, the SISWG relies on the work of organizations that develop projects and use cases showcasing the power of blockchain to tackle systemic issues such as inequality, poverty, and climate change. Some of the most interesting blockchain use cases and applications converge on financial inclusion and restorative finance- ReFi, which prioritizes the health and resilience of ecosystems, communities, and the planet over financial gain.
To promote the impact of organizations and projects working towards social impact and sustainability topics, the SISWG, in collaboration with BlockLeaders and Lisa Gibbons, has created a series of podcasts that feature guest speakers from different projects worldwide. The monthly episodes present a project, their use case, the challenges and opportunities that the project faces, how they measure impact, and finally, how others can connect and interact with them.
