General

The present GEF project aims to promote deforestation-free cocoa value chains and restore degraded cocoa-forest landscapes in Côte d#Ivoire. The project envisages action under four overall components: (i) integrated landscape systems for planning and management; (ii) cocoa production best practices and value chains (iii) conservation and restoration of natural habitats, and; (iv) knowledge sharing and dissemination. The activities of these areas will be implemented via three GEF agencies: FAO, UNIDO and UNDP under the leadership of FAO. Three project landscapes have been selected, in close consultation with CFI partners. Two of the landscapes are located in Western Côte d#Ivoire, while a third is located in the east, bordering on Ghana. Briefly, the individual landscapes are as follows: Cavally landscape, Guémon landscape and Indénié-Djuablin/La Mé inter-regional landscape. The component 2 of the project is aimed at achieving improved efficiency, responsibility and sustainability of the cocoa value chain as a key element in ensuring improved livelihoods, maintenance of ecosystem services and global environmental benefits related to land degradation, biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation. Activities under this component will take place within, or otherwise be designed to benefit, the three ta
