A range of different public and private sector organisations have intervened to improve the production of cocoa and smallholder livelihoods in Indonesia. They have employed a variety of methods and approaches. While some successes are evident, cocoa smallholders continue to struggle with the challenges of pest and disease infestation, aging cocoa trees and poor market access. The rate of adoption of good agricultural practices has also been varied – with adoption slower of some practices than others, and in some districts more than others.

This rapid assessment took place in Sulawesi over a period of 12 days (16-27 April 2012). The primary method for this assessment was stakeholder interviews. A structured interview guide was prepared in advance, revolving around four themes: clientele, business management and viability, knowledge networks (outreach and feedback), and outcomes (impacts and observations).
