    As part of the SIDS Solutions Forum, 30-31 August 2021, FAO collected innovations and creative digital technologies that respond to local problems and challenges. This flyer presents a hot air dryer for roots and tubers. Local food losses are mainly due to poor infrastructure, power outages, extreme weather conditions, and high transport costs. Traditional processing and preservation are of limited value in extending the shelf life of food. The hot air dryer extends the shelf life of products. This technology supports farmers in fulfilling their consumption needs throughout the year, producing a surplus, and selling the extra to the market. This food processing technology has also helped extend value chains to urban centres and between islands.

    As part of the SIDS Solutions Forum, 30-31 August 2021, FAO collected innovations and creative digital technologies that respond to local problems and challenges. More than half of Fijians suffer from poor nutritional status and diet-related health problems. This flyer presents a mobile app to help Fijians take ownership of their own health status. The app works by tracking dietary intake on a daily basis through a platform called “my meals” that creates specific recipes culturally familiar to the user.
