Story

Ivory Coast is the world’s biggest cocoa producer. The cacao industry in this country is estimated to involve about 4 million people, of which approximately 800,000 are farmers. Cocoa is typically grown in small family-owned plots along other cash crops and are tended by the family members.

The cocoa sector nowadays is suffering threats such as deforestation and land degradation, the widespread occurrence of pests and diseases, early ageing of unshaded trees, no access to credit and agricultural inputs, as well as lack of land ownership. NGO’s, research institutes and the Ivorian government have been investing resources in the promotion of agroforestry schemes, the distribution of improved genetic stocks and inputs and providing more widespread training on good farming practices.
