AdaptCoop: the adaptation of cocoa cooperatives in a context of climate change in Côte d’Ivoire

The overall objective of this research project is to sustainably increase the resilience of cocoa cooperatives and member families dealing with the impact of climate change in Côte d’Ivoire. Specific objectives are to increase knowledge and strengthen capacity to develop climate scenarios to determine vulnerability to climate change in West Africa, particularly in Côte d’Ivoire; to consolidate and enhance Ivorian expertise in interpreting climate scenarios for the cocoa value chain; and to inform national policies accordingly.

The project aims to strengthen the adaptive capacity of cocoa cooperatives and producers to develop a gender-sensitive tool to support decision-making for cocoa cooperatives in favour of adapting to climate change. In addition, the project aims to integrate gender equality considerations into the decision-making processes to adapt to climate change and to improve women’s access to the resources necessary for adapting to climate change.
