Project General Description

The Cocoa Sector Governance Support Project (PAGFIC) is an institution-building project aimed at improving the performance of the cocoa sector in Côte d'Ivoire, with particular emphasis on the Coffee-Cocoa Board. The project is part of a broad support programme to both countries funded by the AfDB Group and the World Bank. It supports both institutional reforms and capacity building, including coordination with Ghana. PAGFIC, which focuses on strengthening governance of the cocoa sector, has three components: (i) support for structuring of the sector; (ii) support for stakeholder capacity building; and (iii) project management. The total project cost is UA 6.0 million. Improvement of the marketing system will prevent problems that could lead to a decrease in the farm-gate price. Cooperation with Ghana will be important to control diseases that might otherwise force farmers to cut down their trees.

Project Objectives

The overall objective of the project is to strengthen sector management governance, with a view to improving efficiency and ensuring a decent income for farmers. The specific objectives of the project are to: (i) support reforms aimed at strengthening the structuring of the cocoa sector, including the operationalization of the Côte d'Ivoire-Ghana Joint Committee; (ii) build the capacity of entities responsible for cocoa sector management to enable them to fulfil their responsibilities effectively.

Beneficiaries

The project will benefit primarily to cocoa farmers.
