Forest- and climate -smart cocoa in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana: aligning stakeholders to support smallholders in deforestation-free cocoa

The World Bank, together with the World Cocoa Foundation and Climate Focus, has released a new report to help guide the work of these governments and companies to operationalize the Frameworks for Action at the level of cocoa farmers. The report, entitled “Forest- and Climate -Smart Cocoa in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana: Aligning Stakeholders to Support Smallholders in Deforestation-Free Cocoa”, identifies eight priority actions that these governments and the private sector can take to shift cocoa production practices in West Africa toward sustainable management, and eliminate deforestation from the cocoa supply chain.
