This report presents an update on Plantwise implementation between January and December 2020. It lists key highlights during the reporting period and provides a narrative on progress, lessons learned and next steps for each of the three programme components. Gender is embedded in activities under all Programme components but is covered in a standalone section because of its unique requirements. In addition, there is an update on donor engagement. The report is accompanied by annexes, including the final programme milestones report for last year, and 1-page country reports showing highlights, challenges and lessons learned.

Worldwide, over 500 million smallholder farmers provide food for two-thirds of the earth’s growing population. Achieving a zero hunger world by 2030 depends on increasing the productivity of these smallholder farmers – but their crops face a significant threat. Yearly, an estimated 40% of crops grown worldwide are lost to pests. If we could reduce crop losses by just 1%, we could potentially feed millions more people. The lack of access to timely, appropriate and actionable extension advice makes it a fundamental challenge for farmers to get the right information at the right time to reduce crop losses.
