Cocoa Value Chain

Projet terminé

Cocoa produced in agroforestry systems, mostly by smallholders in Nicaragua and Honduras, substantially increases employment and income generation as well as food security. This project links and capacitates key actors of the cocoa value chain in both countries and at the regional level. It promotes public-private partnerships to benefit 3’000 small cocoa producers and their families.

Contexte

There is a steadily increasing global demand for quality cocoa. Central America has a large potential in terms of planting areas and improved productivity. However, there is a need to improve production, productivity, processing and selling of cocoa. Organizational, business and technical capacities of producers and producers’ organizations are low and service provision is poorly developed.

Objectifs

To contribute to poverty reduction of the rural population and improve food security in Nicaragua and Honduras.
