Cocoa Sector Advances on Living Income
October 25, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am EDT
The Living Income Community of Practice (co-facilitated by the Sustainable Food Lab, GIZ and ISEAL) will be holding a webinar focusing on the cocoa sector advances on living income. The announcement that the Ivorian and Ghanaian governments will raise the floor price for cocoa farmers, as well as levy an extra fee to cocoa buyers, is an important and necessary step in order to make the cocoa sector more sustainable. We will discuss this important development from the viewpoint of European civil society with Antonie Fountain, Managing Director of The VOICE Network, and Regis Meritan, Head of Sector Agricultural Growth, European Commission, to consider the critical enabling factors in the implementation of the price mechanisms to deliver improved incomes for farming families over the long term. You can register for the event here.
