Le Monde features the success of the first sustainable cocoa initiative In Côte d’Ivoire

Cacaoyer mission BRL Bassin Congo
Le Monde has published a piece on an organic fair trade cocoa initiative in Côte d’Ivoire, showcasing the Société coopérative équitable du Bandama (SCEB) with its plans to extend organic production methods across the country. There were major obstacles facing the world's leading cocoa bean producing country, where the pursuit of yield can lure cocoa farmers away from sustainable production methods. SCEB’s achievement is part of the extensive “ÉQUITÉ” programme co-financed by the FFEM and AFD to expand fair trade throughout West Africa.

Sylvie Gourlet-Fleury et Jean-Louis Doucet : « Les forêts d’Afrique centrale ne sont pas uniformes »

Tag
Forêts camerounaises
Aujourd’hui, la gestion forestière fait face à de multiples défis en termes d’adaptation au changement climatique, de préservation de la biodiversité et de durabilité de l’exploitation forestière. Si le plan d’aménagement est le premier outil de réponse pour une gestion durable des forêts, les pays d’Afrique centrale font face à un enjeu majeur : le renouvellement des stocks des espèces d’arbres exploitées. Pour Jean-Louis Doucet, professeur à Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech et Sylvie Gourlet-Fleury, chercheuse au Cirad, il est nécessaire de renforcer la durabilité de l’exploitation dans le cadre de l’aménagement forestier. A l’occasion de la journée internationale des forêts, ils nous parlent de leurs travaux dans le cadre des projets DynAfFor et P3FAC soutenus par le FFEM, et des recommandations qui en découlent, pour une meilleure gestion des forêts d’Afrique centrale
