Brief Description: Introduction of Cocoa Certification
PDA introduced cocoa certification to 27 farmer associations and re-structured 29 others through participatory dialogue and sensitization under the EU/CSSP 2 in 8 districts of Ashanti and Western Regions. PDA linked the 27 farmer organisations to input suppliers and kept contact with the 29 farmer associations which had challenges in their organizational development, with a view of soliciting resources to support them in future. Unfortunately, the project came to an end before this objective could be achieved.
