The Partnership for Productivity Protection and Resilience in Cocoa Landscapes (3PRCL) project aims to achieve a deforestation-free cocoa landscape, support the development of a market for climate-smart cocoa beans , and develop and pilot a landscape-wide governance framework in the Juabeso-Bia landscape in the Western region of Ghana.
The expected outcome of the project is to catalyze investment from the private sector to preserve approximately 160,000 hectares of protected forest reserve and deliver socioeconomic benefits to an estimated 150,000 people by 2020.
Touton is leading a consortium of partners which includes state institutions, traditional authorities, NGOs and private sector actors to implement this project.
The project is currently being implemented in Bia West and Juabeso administrative Districts in the Western region of Ghana.
