Data Collection Training

To kick off farmer data collection, we've put together a series of YouTube tutorials on navigating Acorn's Data Collection Tool (DCT). These should serve as handy guides for field technicians and data collectors.

Acorn description

Need help describing Acorn? Below is our Acorn-approved boilerplate:

At Acorn, part of Rabobank, we help support smallholder farmers in developing countries transition to agroforestry. Together with local partners, wefacilitate the funding and training needed by farmers to start their agroforestry transition. Transforming the sequestered CO2 through agroforestry into Carbon Removal Units (CRUs), we offer carbon credits to responsible corporates to help them reach their climate goals. The growth of the trees is measured with satellite imagery, AI and LiDAR, and certified by ICROA-accredited Plan Vivo.

With 80% of the sales revenue going directly to the farmers, it creates an additional income stream and helps them adopt a more climate-resilient way of farming that improves food security, biodiversity, and financial independence.
