Cocoa Livelihoods Baseline Data Collection and Evaluation

2009-2011
Prepared For

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and members of the cocoa industry, the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF) is implementing the cocoa livelihoods program to provide a range of interventions to increase the incomes of households in the cocoa-producing areas of five West and Central African countries—Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Liberia. Through farmer-to-farmer training and other diffusion techniques, the program expects to increase household income and cocoa productivity. Funders are also interested in knowing if increased household income positively affects nutrition and children’s schooling outcomes and evaluating whether farmers are implementing program interventions at expected levels.
