NEW YORK — Jiva CEO Ramanarayanan Mahadevan spoke at the United Nations Headquarters for #SDGdigital hosted by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as a part of the UN General Assembly, New York, last Sunday (17/09).
Jiva was chosen to represent Indonesia and SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) - as a digital solution that helps the global community accelerate our progress in achieving zero hunger by 2030.
Ram presented how Jiva is helping smallholder farmers, who produce 70% of the world's food but are amongst the most hungry people in the world, by solving the multifaceted challenges they face every day: lack of access to technology, low level of digital literacy, unfair markets, and minimal opportunity to get financial services.
When we help solve these challenges, smallholder farmers will get better income and livelihoods - and when we make sure that the world's largest food producers are prosperous, we are on the fast track towards solving world hunger.
We are honoured to be a part of this noble mission of ensuring the achievement of sustainable development goals while making the world a little bit more equal for everyone.
