Seminar on Sustainable Cocoa in Ghana
We invite key stakeholders in the Danish cocoa sector to a half-day seminar on cocoa, people, agroforestry, sustainability and climate change.
The suitable area for cocoa cultivation is predicted to decrease substantially due to climate change, with dire consequences for farmers’ livelihood and the cost of chocolate. Can shade-grown cocoa offer a solution?
This event presents results from the Climate Smart Cocoa in Ghana (CLIMCOCOA) project, which investigated the biophysical and socioeconomic aspects of cocoa agroforestry in times of climate change.
About the CLIMCOCA project
The project studied cocoa agroforestry in Ghana, the second largest producer of cocoa in the world, focusing on:
- How agroforestry can become a sustainable and profitable pathway;
- The context-specific socioeconomic and biophysical factors that impact the potential of agroforestry;
- The potential of multidisciplinary approaches for studying sustainable cocoa.
