This report reflects performance on key sustainability indicators in the 2010 and 2012 cocoa production years for certified farmers in the Ahafo Ano North and Ahafo Ano South districts of Ghana. The 2010 effort represents a true baseline year which created a snapshot of UTZ Certified farmers in these districts before they become certified. The study was commissioned by UTZ Certified and Solidaridad to learn what aspects of the implementation of UTZ certification worked effectively to improve farmer livelihoods and overall sustainability.
