World Cocoa Foundation assists Ghana

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the implementation of phase two of World Cocoa Foundation’s Cocoa Livelihood Programme (CLP) was signed on Friday 3rd October 2014 between Ghana’s Ministry of Food & Agriculture (MoFA) and the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF).

The CLP programme, which began in 2009, operates in West Africa’s four cocoa-producing countries- Ghana, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria.

It aims at increasing farm-level cocoa productivity to 1,000kg/hectare, improving service delivery, access to planting materials, fertilizer and agrochemicals, as well as enhancing farmer resiliency through the production of food crops.

Scheduled to end in February 2018, it has a total funding of $70 million over a 10-year period.

The agreement would cover activities expected to reach more than 60,000 cocoa-growing households in Ghana. Read More....
