Capacity building on price risk management strategy for cocoa smallholder farmers in Africa (CFC/ICCO/44FA)

 

The goal of the project is to equip cocoa producers in West Africa with knowledge and skills necessary to employ an appropriate mix of instruments available to mitigate price risks. The specific objective of the project is to implement a programme of awareness raising, training and capacity building on the costs, the negative impact and mitigation measures relevant to intra-seasonal cocoa price volatility. This would lead to more predictable incomes, better production management and, eventually, more sustainable long-term outlook for the cocoa sector in West Africa.
