We know from our 10 years of experience that it requires initiatives on a broad range of areas to make cocoa farming sustainable -both financially, socially and environmentally.
Key elements in our latest Danida Business Partnership Programme was:
- training og the farmers in productive and environmentally friendly farming methods
- education on business planning and financial management
- creating demonstration farms for training purposes
- providing individual guidance and support to the farmers adjusting their farming methods
With better access to high quality planting material as well as safe loans and savings options, this have resulted in improved productivity and living conditions.
