Main goals

In Côte d'Ivoire, as elsewhere, supply chain approaches based on private certification or private sector sustainability programs are struggling to demonstrate their ability to effectively address the territorial and cross-cutting issues that concern them. Thus the objective is to contribute to the Côte d'Ivoire-EU political dialogue and to the reflections associated with the finalization of the sustainable cocoa strategy of Côte d'Ivoire by developing a proposal for a jurisdictional approach to the sustainability of cocoa production

Specific objectives

SO1. Propose a grid of indicators that can serve as a basis for (inter)national/(sub)regional reflections and to produce a preliminary mapping of the baseline situation of each of the cocoa producing regions in Côte d'Ivoire
SO2. Define the conditions under which the regional councils could provide leadership for the sustainability actions implemented in their territories and be able to improve the assessment that could be made of them
