Fostering low cadmium and climate-relevant innovations to enhance the resilience and inclusiveness of the growing cocoa sectors in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru (Clima-LoCa)
The project will address important challenges related to the resilience, competitiveness and inclusiveness of the growing cocoa sectors. Here, resilience refers to the capacity of smallholder producers, and other value chain actors, to mitigate the negative impacts of new EU food safety regulation on cadmium in cocoa; and of climate change. The project builds on the premise that agricultural innovations require engagement of diverse end users, to co-develop context-relevant production systems and practices based on strong, interdisciplinary science, while creating an enabling environment for their adoption and scaling.
