CocoaSoils holds maiden baseline coordinators’ meeting and training of enumerators
The Monitoring and Evaluation Unit of the CocoaSoils Program has organized its maiden coordinators’ meeting and training of enumerators for Ghana, at the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana in Tafo. The event was held on 20–21 March to have a common understanding and agree on the methodology of the baseline tool to be used across the four countries in West Africa.
Sixteen enumerators and four baseline coordinators attended the training from Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Nigeria. This was followed by a demonstration of the tool carried out by the enumerators and coordinators in Obodanase, a cocoa-growing village in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Enumerator training in the other three countries will take place between 8 and 17 April. Data collection for the baseline survey is due to commence in April and will run concurrently in the different regions.
