REPORT: Forest- and Climate -Smart Cocoa in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana: Aligning Stakeholders to Support Smallholders in Deforestation-Free Cocoa

Global cocoa production faces mounting environmental and economic challenges. Despite long-term global demand, cocoa producers are confronting the triple challenge of increasing productivity on limited land, reducing pressure on forests and ecosystems, and increasing their resilience to climate change. This new report, launched collaboratively by the World Bank, Climate Focus and the World Cocoa Foundation, aims to inform governments, companies, and civil society partners on ways to enhance sustainability and encourage smallholders to make deforestation-free, climate-smart choices. The focus is on actions that lead to scaling up renovation and rehabilitation (‘R&R’) efforts in Côte d`Ivoire and Ghana so farmers can grow more cocoa on less land.
