Clima-LoCa advances

Clima-LoCa | Colombia

Within the framework of the project, last March 8 in Orito, Putumayo, we held the workshop on progress in the treatment of cadmium (Cd) with our farmers and protagonists of the cocoa chain in the territory. We explored research advances together and engaged in open dialogue, allowing voices to come together to enrich the space. It was a great opportunity to connect ideas and experiences! In addition, continuing with the commemoration of women’s month, we celebrated the event recognizing the invaluable work of women in the cocoa chain in Putumayo.
