Solidaridad West Africa has kick-started a weeklong capacity building for 20 field enumerators for the Nigeria Resilience Cocoa Farmers’ Programme. The enumerators will use digital tools to collect data on cocoa farmers for the programme.

Solidaridad West AfricaCocoa farmers in Boki, Etung, Ikom, Obubra, Obanliku, and Obudu, local government areas of the Cross River state of Nigeria, are benefiting from the programme.

The programme supports farmers to mitigate the root cause underlying several corporate sustainable risks, such as child labour, deforestation, and gender inequalities in the cocoa valuechain.

It is also aimed at improving the yield and income of cocoa farmers with good practices and access to new and sustainable technology.

The programme will further support income diversification activities of cocoa farmers and improve the economic role of women in the sector.
