Good data + great partners = strong supply chains and better livelihoods for farmers.
April 6, 2016
Working closely with JACOBS DOUWE EGBERTS in a combined partnership with IDH, the Sustainable Trade Initiative, the International Finance Corporation, University of Sydney, TechnoServe, Honducafé, Indocafco, the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), the Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development (IPSARD), and Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung, we are pleased to announce the culmination of an 18-month effort aimed at improving the livelihoods of farmers in Ethiopia, Honduras, Indonesia,, and Vietnam.
The effort targeted six key supply chains to improve sustainability among farmers. We implemented a tailored suite of performance monitoring tools to help managers and the key stakeholders systematize their sustainability initiatives and measure actual progress in real time. The work has already uncovered useful data for building resilience and better targeting vital populations for training interventions.
The commitment to ensuring a clear return on the investment and a credible reporting of outcomes led to launching several full-scale impact assessments gathering comparable and standardized data.
Many thanks to the key people whose excellent skills helped make this work possible, especially: Fabien Guilmineau, Nadia Hoarau-Mwaura, Mattia Guglielmi, Stefanie Miltenburg, Gina Canales, Do Sy, and Don Jansen.
