The project will support the cocoa industry to remove deforestation and poaching from its supply chain, as well as the Ivorian government’s commitment to a deforestation-free agricultural economy, by facilitating the creation of a Landscape Management Board in South-West Taï to rehabilitate degraded land in and around forest reserves.
Communities adjacent to Taï National Park understand and engage in sustainable land-use and natural resource management, while cocoa farmers apply sustainable, climate-smart, biodiversity-conserving practices that improve their productivity and incomes.
