Project to Rehabilitate Cocoa Farming in Ghana

The Ghana Cocoa Board (Cocobod) has launched a project to treat and rehabilitate some 10,000 hectares of diseased and overage cocoa farms in the Western North and Eastern regions this year.

The project will involve the removal of 11 million trees for replanting.

The Climate-Smart Finance workshop was organised by Rainforest Alliance with support from partners, including World Cocoa Foundation, Rootcapital and Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security, to identify concrete solutions and ways to unlock climate smart agriculture finance in the Ghanaian Cocoa sector.

It was on the theme: “Designing Investment Mechanisms to Finance Climate-Smart Cocoa in the Ghanaian Cocoa Sector.”
