Eight priority actions to shift cocoa production practices in West Africa toward sustainable management

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.
A new report 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 so farmers can grow more cocoa on less land.
