Monitoring the scope and benefits of Fairtrade – fifth edition – 2013

Published: 11 Jun 2014


This report gives the results of the annual monitoring data collection from Fairtrade certified producer organizations which took place during 2012. It presents the scope and scale of Fairtrade in 2012, and gives data for some key Fairtrade performance indicators from a producer perspective. The report also captures the results of recent research generating evidence about the longer term impacts of Fairtrade.

The information generated through our monitoring and evaluation processes is used to inform and guide the Fairtrade system. It gives us an important indication of how we are performing in relation to our ambitions to unlock the power of the Fairtrade system to drive impact for farmers and workers in Fairtrade producer organizations. Monitoring and evaluation shows us where we are performing well, and where we have challenges to overcome. Being aware of these challenges allows us to reshape our programme activities to address them.
