PemPem now dynamically traces to village
*The figure shows all of the villages that supplied fruit to an illustrative mill in the PemPem database at least once over the 22-month period, Nov ’18 to Sept ’20, together with remaining forest cover. The sliding bar across the top shows one-month intervals over the period, with supplying villages during each month highlighted in pink. If you hover your mouse over villages, a pop up provides attribute data of the village, including the supply chain actor through which a supply link is established between village and mill (e.g. middleman, amprah farmer, ramp).
The PemPem Handshake
When a member of the informal smallholder supply chain records a transaction on PemPem, the other party to the transaction needs to confirm the transaction through a digital handshake referred to as a PemPem Handshake. Once both parties confirm the transaction, it gets locked and uploaded to the transaction ledger of both parties.
