Terms of Reference: Implementation of a Support Mechanism for Monitoring Deforestation in Côte d’Ivoire

The Cocoa and Forests Initiative (“CFI” or the “Initiative”) is an active commitment of the main cocoa-producing countries and the main cocoa and chocolate companies to halt deforestation and restore forest cover by avoiding any further conversion of forests for cocoa cultivation.

We believe that collaboration between companies and the public sector on deforestation monitoring systems is crucial for addressing environmental challenges. Based on the recommendations of the pilot phase of the project and to meet the requirements of European regulations on deforestation, a second phase will be implemented.

The Permanent Secretariat, which for this specific assignment will be led by IDH, is therefore looking for a consultant to lead this second phase of the project.

Questions regarding the assignment can be submitted by 20 April 2024 at 3 p.m. GMT, by e-mail to gnagne@idhtrade.org with the express mention: “Questions tender Implementation of a support mechanism for monitoring deforestation in Côte d’Ivoire”.

The proposal must be submitted to Kevin Gnagne at gnagne@idhtrade.org with a copy to Col. Ynsa Traoré at ynsa.tk@gmail.com before 03 May 2024 at 11:59 p.m. GMT.
