Research took place in Kenya on the socio-economic and socio-cultural role of trees in small-scale farms. A new method for regional data assessment and evaluation has been developed. This method includes new communication tools which allow a more time-efficient data collection ensuring best data quality. The method is based on a network of communication tools which support each other with information. The economic data is cross-checked with the farmers for its reliability.

The new method is time and cost saving.
