Recording and understanding your data: ABCD

Community members in western Kenya are recording and using their on- and off-farm data with the help of the integrated household leaky bucket tool, which helps them make evidence-based livelihood decisions. The leaky bucket is the ‘star tool’ introduced through the asset-based community-driven development (ABCD) approach. This video documents the outcomes of the Comart Foundation-funded Accelerating Adoption of Agroforestry (Triple A) project implemented by World Agroforestry (ICRAF) and the legacy of Comart’s investments in ABCD in the Nyando region. Additional work on personalized data reports and ‘farmer dashboards’ (with a special focus on gender aspects) was funded by Global Affairs Canada’s Fund for Innovation and Technology.
