Through its partners, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) has conducted baseline surveys at household, village and organisational levels across the five target regions.

The baseline surveys are a key component of CCAFS monitoring, learning and evaluation (ML&E) system. The challenge has been to design tools and instruments that adhere to the highest quality standards in data collection in order to allow for cross-site comparisons to be made.

The baseline data collection happened in two phases: 2010/11 in South Asia, West and East Africa and 2014/15 in Latin America and Southeast Asia.

All data, publications and questionnaires are publicly available on CCAFS' Dataverse website.
