Promoting zero-deforestation cocoa production for reducing emissions in Côte d’Ivoire (PROMIRE)
Côte d’Ivoire has experienced one of the world’s fastest rates of deforestation and forest degradation. Agriculture contributes to 62 percent of deforestation, 38 percent of which is driven by cocoa production.
This project will implement zero-deforestation agroforestry models in three southern regions of Cote d'Ivoire to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by decoupling deforestation from cocoa production. Scaling up a previous pilot project that successfully promoted agroforestry schemes, PROMIRE will build institutional capacities to implement REDD+ at national and sub-national levels. Under this plan, farmers will be encouraged to carry out non-deforestation practices through the promotion of organic and fair-trade cocoa production. Their access to markets will also be strengthened. Data will be used to reduce emissions by implementing innovative, low-carbon land use models in 30 selected villages.
