3 I USAID/CILSS DATA COLLECTION SYSTEM CILSS collects data through intra-regional trade for a more complete and accurate understanding of regional trade of commodities and to promote the West African regional trade in staple food commodities. Data are collected by professional organizations from ATP/EATP countries through national private partner apex associations or regional organizations and data collection activities are supported by grants after grant agreements were signed with CILSS. The data collected include data on ruminant livestock (cattle, sheep and goats), maize, millet, sorghum and parboiled rice. The trade data collectors are positioned at exit points (borders) and in strategic markets in the various countries in the region to collect data on cross-border trade and on staple food commodities. The countries covered include Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo. These data collection activities are done on a daily basis in each country and are supervised by focal points that collate and transmit same to CILSS on a monthly basis.
