Recognizing the needs and importance to restore cocoa ecosystems in West Africa, PUR Projet launched two projects in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. Launched in 2018, the project in Ivory Coast, PUR aims to restore Cocoa ecosystems through agroforestry and improved livelihoods with the support and partnership of local cooperatives, farmers and key funders: Cargill, General Mills, Sucden, IDH and Puratos.

“ We used to have a dry season and a rainy season. Now, the seasons are getting mixed up and the land is very dry. When all the sudden it rains, it often comes heavy and with strong winds. ” Project community member
