The focus of the report Forest- and Climate-Smart Cocoa in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana is on actions that lead to scaling up renovation and rehabilitation (‘R&R’) efforts in Côte d`Ivoire and Ghana so farmers can grow more cocoa on less land. The report identifies eight priority areas that could boost cocoa productivity, raise smallholder incomes and expand tree cover.

This report aims to inform governments, companies, and civil society partners on ways to enhance sustainability and encourage smallholders to make deforestation-free, climate-smart choices. It can help guide the work of these governments and companies as they work together to operationalize their Frameworks.
