COVID-19: Stories of Resilience and Recovery
For Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation’s agribusiness partners, 2020 began much as it did for entrepreneurs anywhere: ambitious plans to grow sales, reach new customers, or perhaps launch new products and services. Just a few months into the year, however, any sense of optimism shifted to shock and upheaval as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded around the world.
Supply chain disruptions, movement restrictions, and falling consumer demand made it difficult to sustain operations and generate revenue. Yet despite the growing crisis, our partners found ways to persevere, embracing innovation as they adapted their operations and turned adversity into opportunity. Now, many months into the pandemic, the impact of these efforts are becoming visible on their road to recovery.
COVID-19 Partner Survey
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation surveyed its global network of agribusiness partners in May 2020 to better understand how key areas of their business operations have been affected. Results and insights from this effort are presented in this infographic series.
