Photo bank for: WCSdb: A database of Wild Coffea Species

Romain Guyot, Perla Hamon, Emmanuel Couturon, Nathalie Raharimalala & Jean-Jacques Rakotomalala
Coffee is a beverage enjoyed by millions of people worldwide and an important commodity for millions of people. Beside the two cultivated species (Coffea arabica and Coffea canephora), the 139 wild coffee species belong to the Coffea genus are largely unknown to coffee scientists and breeders although these species may be crucial for future coffee crop development to face climate changes. Here we present the Wild Coffee Species database hosted by PlantNet platform (http://publish.plantnet-project.org/project/wildcofdb_en), providing...

Community readiness to address unhealthy food and beverage consumption in Ghana: in-depth interview transcripts of local stakeholders

This study assessed community readiness to address unhealthy food and beverage consumption in women of reproductive age in urban Ghana. The Community Readiness Model (CRM) assessed the stage of readiness of communities within Accra and Ho to address the consumption of unhealthy foods and beverages. In-depth individual interviews were conducted in 2018 with 24 key informants from various sectors across the two cities. The CRM survey consists of 36 open questions addressing five readiness dimensions:...

Participatory photography (photovoice) to explore food environments in Ghana: interview transcripts

The aim of this study was to identify social and physical factors that influence food choices in women and adolescent girls living in urban Ghana. In 2017, a qualitative study was conducted amongst women and adolescent girls aged 13-49 years living in socio-economically deprived urban neighbourhoods in Accra (n=32) and Ho (n=32). Participants used photography to identify characteristics in their social and physical environment that drive their dietary behaviours. Specifically, participants were asked to take...

Rebecca Pradeilles, Amos Laar, Milkah Wanjohi, Akua Tandoh, Mark Green, Gershim Asiki, Hibbah Osei-Kwasi, Elizabeth Kimani-Murage, Paula Griffiths & Michelle Holdsworth
Food intake was assessed using qualitative 24hr recall (food type information only, not quantity consumed). In 2017, interviewers noted all food and drink consumed by participants inside/outside the home in the previous 24hr period, also recording how long a food event lasts (time categories), time of day of the food event (exact time in minutes), who participants eat with and where. The 24hr dietary recall was structured around a pre-populated 24hr recall tool that we...
