New frontiers: Remote UX design for Beekeeping App

28 Jun 2021
If you ever wondered what happens when 24 beekeepers, a translator, a cat, and a UX designer connect across 12 timezones for two days, you find yourself in the middle of our project. The AI-Driven Climate Smart Beekeeping for Women project (AID-CSB) centers around the customization and localization of an app to help beekeepers in Uzbekistan and Ethiopia better monitor and manage their hives. To ensure that the app is suitable for the beekeepers, a user research process was implemented in Uzbekistan in June 2021. We sat down with project user-experience (UX) designer Sarah to learn more about the process.

New ISI publication on enabling factors for farmer-driven pollinator protection

29 Apr 2021
The replication of the FAP-cucumber trial in Uzbekistan (2013-2014) in Morocco (2015-2016) demonstrated the agronomic replicability of Farming with Alternative Pollinators (FAP). However, it also revealed that in countries with lower formal education a second enabling factor for farmer-driven pollinator protection is needed besides the method-inherent incentive of higher income per surface: a knowledge-raising campaign. This was further demonstrated by a survey conducted in Morocco, Turkey and Benin including 766 smallholder farmers.
