Showcase 12: Videos help cocoa farmers see the big picture.
This series of two-page briefs highlights some of the new technologies and processes available, in order to inspire practitioners and policy-makers to put them to use. This one describes how poor farmers in West Africa are using a set of participatory learning and teaching materials to reduce the impact of pests and stabilise cocoa yields, reducing their input and labour costs and improving their living conditions. Farmers, support staff and advisors have worked together to build up their video production capacity to help spread the use of these improved techniques.
