Partnerships for productivity protection and resilience in cocoa landscapes

Published: 15 Jan 2018
Type: Case study

Since 2014, Touton has operated in the Juabeso-Bia landscape in the Western region of Ghana, considered to be one of the deforestation hotspot intervention areas (HIA) for the Ghana Cocoa Forest REDD+ Programme (GCFRP). The landscape spans 243,561 ha (140,000 ha of which is forest area) and has a population of just under 150,000 people, approximately 80,000 of whom are cocoa farmers. Touton is a major buyer in this area and has a cocoa processing facility in Tema, Ghana. From the outset, Touton has been championing an inclusive landscape approach, better coordination of natural resource use and improved farmer livelihoods, to enhance both ecosystem health and resilience as well as security of supply.
