Thank you, “cocoa doctors”
Chocolate comes in all shapes and forms, but it all needs one vital ingredient. Cocoa. A decade ago it was predicted that by 2020 the world would have shortfall of one million tonnes a year.
IFAD and its partners in Indonesia set up a scheme to train local small estate farmers to be cocoa doctors. Improving the health of their plants and, in the process, the economic prospects for local farmers in Sulawesi, Indonesia.
