Improving Welfare in Agricultural Supply Chains: An Analytics and Modeling-Based Approach
"Multiple developing and developed countries have launched online platforms to unify geographically dispersed agriculture markets with the goal of improving smallholder farmers’ welfare, but very little is known about the resulting impact or the ‘optimal’ design of such platforms. In this talk, Dr. Singhvi uses data-driven research tools to provide rigorous impact assessment of one such platform and highlights several important supply chain and logistics parameters that can inform their design. A policy intervention based on these insights has already benefitted 10,000 smallholder farmers in India. His research demonstrates how a data-driven approach that accounts for operational and behavioral considerations in the field can improve welfare in agri-supply chains of developing countries."
