THE CHALLENGES CHALLENGE 1Climate change and deforestation is threatening the sustainability of cocoa. There is an opportunity for better crop monitoring and agroforestry tracking throughout the cocoa farming process through better data. How might we leverage remote sensors and available technologies to improve data tracking to support decision making and improve transparency? CHALLENGE 2Cocoa farmers need to diversify their activities, which means producing other crops to make the most out of their lands, enjoy diversified diets, ensure ongoing and regular incomes (outside cocoa seasons) as well as enhance the agricultural biodiversity. In this case they will also need to access market channels that bring them closer to the consumers, and help them secure alternative incomes. How can digital technology help famers get access to the market to get alternative and regular incomes? CHALLENGE 3Real time communication to and from farmers can improve traceability, farm management, and overall efficiency. How might we create tools that facilitate the coaching and servicing of farmers?

Women who are building their own brands (not representing and selling other brands.) And once a month we invite you (regardless of whether you’re a member,) to join us for a free cup of coffee. Come see why Her Corner has become the go-to resource for women growing their businesses. Join us to experience what we now call “The Power of Collective Intelligence.” What one member recently said about our monthly free coffee: What sets Her Corner apart from other women’s organizations is that it attracts women who are serious about building their (real) businesses. Her Corner members are here for business advice and support around issues such as how to scale, production challenges, and marketing for growth. This event is open to everyone and the coffee is on us! We’ll be at Le Pain Quotidien Spring Valley from 10am – 12pm! 4874 Massachusetts Avenue NW Washington, DC 20016 Want to learn more now? Click here to visit us online.
