Public–private–people partnership for cocoa and forests in Côte d’Ivoire
- Impact Area
For decades, Côte d’Ivoire has been the world’s largest producer and exporter of cocoa. Its homegrown ‘brown gold’ accounts for almost 40% of world production.
The coffee and cocoa sector plays an essential economic role in Côte d’Ivoire, contributing 14% of GDP and 38% of export earnings in 2015 (data from Ministère auprès du Premier Ministre, Chargé de l’Economie et des Finances ; Direction Générale de l’Economie; Direction de la Conjoncture et de la Prévision Economique). Most of the production comes from nearly 1.5 million hectares of small, family-run plantations.
