The objective of this COSA analysis is to measure the impact of the UTZ Certified standard on agricultural sustainability at the coffee farm level in Vietnam. This report presents findings from COSA’s assessment of certification’s impacts using a mixed-methods approach to better capture the diverse conditions found in the field. The main component of the approach was a standardized survey administered to 351 farmers from October through December 2010. This survey collected data on performance related to COSA’s sustainability indicators and was bolstered by several more qualitative methods.
