About the Farmer Training App
Using Dimagi Inc.’s Commcare platform, the Rainforest Alliance has developed the Farmer Training App to support the roll out of the recently revised certification standard set by the Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Agriculture Standard. The 2017 Standard became mandatory for all farms, groups, and cooperatives currently certified through the Rainforest Alliance system since July 2017. The Farmer Training App will enable smallholder farmers to learn more about the new criteria within the revised standard and maintain their certification through best practices. The Rainforest Alliance aims to leverage the Farmer Training App to increase climate-smart agricultural practices on smallholder farms in remote rural areas.
