Bélier Ivory Coast
Description

This initiative is aimed at the construction of four forests of 5 hectares each near the towns of Toumodi, Djékanou, Tiébissou and Didiévi.

As a result of the initiative, the Region of Belier wants to regenerate the degraded vegetation cover and eventually reverse the negative effects of climate change. The Region of Belier wants to give these actions capital importance, as the protection and the respect of our environment daily deteriorates.

Description

The objective of this initiative, funded by the Ivorian Government, is to achieve a national interpretation of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Palm Oil) standard to facilitate the obtaining of RSPO certification by Ivorian palm oil producers. The first beneficiary of the project is the Interprofessional Association of the Palm Oil Industry (AIPH). The results of the project will provide lessons on the potential benefits of certification in other sectors where the FIP will operate, including the teak-related economic value chain or cocoa farms implementing agroforestry practices.

Description

This project, financed by the World Bank to the tune of 25 billion FCFA, aims to strengthen the added value of export products, in close collaboration with the interprofessionals of Natural Rubber (APROMAC) and Palm Oil (AIPH), as well as with the Coffee Cocoa Council (CCC). Increasing the value added of export products is likely to result in greater stability of cocoa production, particularly in Classified Forests, and thereby contribute to creating a favorable environment for agroforestry contracting to enhance the effectiveness of the interventions of the projects of the PIF.

Description

This BAD-funded project is under preparation and is targeting the central region. It aims to promote a sustainable increase in productivity for cash crops with high economic potential, with particular emphasis on young people, women, and PMEs. This project will be implemented through 3 components:

  1. Community infrastructure development;
  2. Development of high potential value chains;
  3. Support for adaptation to climate change.

4,400 producers (farmers, traders, etc.) will benefit from the project, including about 2,200 women. The increase in production should generate an additional income of about 2.2 million FCFA per year and per farm for rice producers, and 3 million FCFA for large producers.
