USAID has worked with Missions to integrate digital tools and technologies into their Feed the Future activities since 2015, first through the Global Development Lab-led Digital Development for Feed the Future (D2FTF) initiative and now through the Bureau for Food Security (BFS). BFS works with DAI's Digital Frontiers project, a buy-in mechanism that allows USAID Missions to receive digital solutions for resilience and food security assessments as well as program, project, and activity design and implementation support.

As part of this work, DAI/Digital Frontiers is conducting a survey of agriculture projects to understand their experiences using digital tools in their work. These findings will be used to inform the Bureau's digital strategy. We thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey.
