Challenge

Cameroon is 80 per cent of cocoa cultivation. This culture is traditionally practiced in the central and western Cameroon since independence. In this period the lighthouse, the cultivation of cocoa knew the best results and was the first export crop of the country and marked the national economy. Over the past decade, it's been a decline in this sector. Cocoa farmers are struggling and produce with difficulty because of high pest pressure and an advanced level of degradation of orchard.

Solution

In this project, we will support for a beginning, a)-Training of 150 cocoa farmers on the achievement of plantations in the background, with capacity building of farmers and their organizations in order to improve their living conditions through the increase in their income. This will lead to increase the yield of production. b)- Regenerate the old cocoa plantation gradually until their rejuvenation, Regeneration of old cocoa plantations covers two basic concepts: rehabilitation and replanting
