MINKA monitoring tool
Developed by ECOTIERRA, MINKA is a database that gathers baseline socio-economic and geographical information, photos, as well as legal documents required by external auditors for the acceptance of parcels inside our projects. The information is used to validate plots submitted and to collect the necessary information for the monitoring and reporting of the projects' progress and impacts.
All necessary data is included in MINKA and is available in real time (online) to all the project partners and stakeholders. Project reports and monitoring reports needed by auditors can all be generated by MINKA.
MINKA and its uses have been tested during the validation of many ECOTIERRA projects, including the Shade Coffee and Cocoa Reforestation Project (SCCRP).
