Sustainable cocoa production in Colombia

We are happy to announce that we have finished our first project with the National Federation of Cacao in Colombia (FEDECACAO) designing a methodology of payments for ecosystem services for cocoa farmers. FEDECACAO was established in 1960 and represents around 35.000 small and medium farmers in Colombia. The association helps cacoa producers with capacity building, technical support, technology transfer, the creation of commercialisation channels and increasingly supports environmental initiatives. ForestFinest Consulting has been assisting FEDECACAO since September 2016 to implement a payments for ecosystem service mechanism that includes protecting biodiversity, maintaining agroforestry, promoting the potential of carbon sequestration from reforestation as a climate change mitigation strategy and reducing the impact to water sheds and water reservoirs.
