At Cocoa Life we have been working closely with Ipsos, our research partner, to refine how we measure and evaluate the impact of the program in our cocoa origin countries. This project has been underway since the start of our partnership in 2016. We do this because we are committed to helping our communities achieve lasting change. This change comes from deep understanding and partnership. As we develop Cocoa Life’s monitoring and evaluation (M&E) approach, we have worked with Ipsos to create papers from the outcome of our investigations. In developing them, we have opened the doors to our program. These papers cover our lessons learned so far and how to pick the right M&E methodology. They assess the strengths and weaknesses of our operations, and provide insights and lessons learned from our experience running the program since we launched.
