IBLI―Creating impacts through Open Access technology

  1. 1. IBLI – Creating Impacts through Open Access Technology Rupsha Banerjee, Nathan Jensen and Francesco Fava ILRI open access week workshop Nairobi, 24 October 2019
  2. 2. Motivation Easily accessible digital technologies can reduce the extremely high costs of delivering services and information to and from remote locations  Challenges o Mobile and dispersed populations increase the cost per client of conventional methods for collecting and delivering valuable information o Challenges in extension and marketing for informed demand in a population with limited literacy and numeracy o Cost of agency: Identifying, training, monitoring and assessing employees face similar costs and barriers  Opportunities o Provide access to some information and services at much lower costs and at greater quality than conventional methods. o Improve the value proposition of IBLI (and other services) by bundling with complementary services. o E.g. finance, information, nutrition o Potential for providing supplementary income
  3. 3. Snapshot of the open access digital world of IBLI Open access technologies have the potential to ease service delivery and information constraints using a distributed network of local agents
  4. 4.  Geo-fenced and period specific task are developed to meet data needs  A mobile application provides contributors with a menu of available tasks and related parameters KAZNET crowdsourcing platform  Contributors complete as many task as they like and are paid for all accepted submissions  Automated and manual data checks
  5. 5.  Improved access to extension materials and information  Standardization of training content and delivery  Incentivized learning increases effectiveness of training  Stimulations through games provide clients with more opportunities to “learn by doing”  Offers opportunities to track agent performance e/m learning and gamification
  6. 6.  Train caregivers to collect and submit information children’s consumption and health status  Important high-frequency monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment tool for implementation programs and integration into national early warning systems Improving nutrition and health data

Market Information System (KAZNET) Structure Key system attributes: Front end: o Mobile app by which data collection tasks are pushed to trained contributors. o Contributors select and execute on tasks, each of which is attached to a value to incentivize provision Back end: o Task allocation system translating client information requirements into specified tasks and incentives and distributes accordingly o Submission tracking and validation Dissemination platform: o Clients access information on user-specific dashboards
  10. 10. Activities and compensation structure • Short questions (5-10 questions) called tasks on important market aspects -prices, volumes, milk, livestock quality, etc. are posted in KAZNET • Each task is rewarded based on the effort (in terms of time) required to perform the task –ranging between 0.2—0.5 USD per tasks • Performance of the tasks is voluntary— following the crowdsourcing logic • Tasks performed by individual are aggregated over a week for payment • Payment is made through MPESA Task Category Submissio ns Percent Livestock Market Operation Status 1,077 1.19 Livestock Prices and Quality 29,501 32.56 Volume of Cattle by Headcount 504 0.56 Unprocessed Milk Prices 8,760 9.67 Other Food Commodity Prices 42,154 46.52 Seller's Perspective of Market Performance 2,746 3.03 Buyer's Perspective of Market Performance 2,558 2.82 Number of Livestock Traders at Market 603 0.67 Number of Lorries at Market 639 0.71 Volume of Livestock Trade (According to 722 0.8 Volume of Shoats (Accrdiong to LMA staf 854 0.94 Volume of Camels by Headcount 488 0.54 Total 90,606 100
  11. 11. Communities Targeted  Male and female pastoralist with smart phones can use KAZNET  Target 10 markets using 60 contributors - 30 female and 30 male  The contributors are people living close to the markets—intention is to provide a complementary source of income  Selection is done through consultative process with community leaders - to increase transparency and inclusivity  All selected contributors are trained on site - remote follow-ups depending on experience in using KAZNET  Private information is not shared to any third party
