World Bank report on eliminating deforestation in cocoa supply chains

The new report, Eliminating Deforestation from the Cocoa Supply Chain, presents a first set of principles for achieving sustainable, deforestation-free cocoa production.

The report analyzes current sustainability projects and best practices in the cocoa sector and makes the business case for moving toward deforestation-free production models.

This report is timely, as throughout 2017, IDH, the World Cocoa Foundation, ISU and partners, will work to develop a public-private framework of action to address deforestation in the cocoa supply chains in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. To follow the progress on the development of that action plan check the Cocoa and Forest Initiative.

About the report 

The report, released by the BioCarbon Fund and the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) together with the World Cocoa Foundation and Climate Focus, describes overarching principles and key strategies that these stakeholders can implement to lay the groundwork for deforestation-free production in the cocoa sector.
