Cacao farmer in Côte d'Ivoire

From January 2022, ZALF under coordination of Dr. Katharina Löhr takes over the scientific accompanying research on measures to achieve a living income for smallholders and increase sustainable cocoa production in Côte d'Ivoire.

The purpose of the project is to provide scientific evidence to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the multi-phase project "PRO-PLANTEURS", which is jointly financed by BMZ, BMEL, the Forum for Sustainable Cocoa and the Ivorian Cocoa Authority and is aimed at expanding sustainable cocoa production in Côte d'Ivoire. In this way, the approved accompanying research project is intended to contribute to the overall achievement of the objectives of "PRO-PLANTEURS", i.e. to improve the living conditions and working conditions of smallholder farmers, to enable them to earn a living and to build up reserves for unforeseen emergency situations, as well as to expand sustainable production methods.
