The BCFN YES grant will help Ghanaian cocoa farmers to get information on the prevention of cocoa swollen shoot virus, which may contribute to their livelihoods

Appropriate information technologies (AIT) such as videos on mobile phones can increase access to information in challenging social contexts. However, the impact of those strategies for sustainable food systems has been poorly addressed. While farmers easily understand videos on agricultural innovations, much is to be learned about how to optimize them. AITAS intends to address this question using a transdisciplinary approach in Ghana. The project unites agronomists, communications scientists, sociologists and film-makers for the creation of videos on the prevention of cocoa swollen shoot virus disease (CSSVD) in Ghana. The areas where the videos are shared with farmers will be revisited to evaluate both their spread and the adoption of portrayed innovations, as well as their real life impact. Implicitly, the project explores the potential of videos to overcome existing gender gaps in terms of access to agricultural information.
