Assessing the impact of Fairtrade on poverty reduction through Rural Development (Follow up study)
In this study, the Center for Evaluation evaluates Fairtrade’s contribution to poverty reduction through rural development. It evaluates cocoa, coffee, cotton flower, tea and bananas as a follow up to a similar evaluation carried out in 2011/12.
The impact of Fairtrade Cocoa is evaluated in Ghana. Overall findings were a heightened awareness of child labour among Fairtrade farmers and generally higher incomes compared to non-Fairtrade farmers.
