"The Impacts of the Cocoa Living Income Differential Policy on Ghana"
by Boysen, Ole, Emanuele Ferrari, Victor Nechifor and Pascal Tillie

The study provides a quantitative assessment of the new Living Income Differential (LID) policy jointly introduced by the governments of Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire to combat poverty among cocoa farmers. A framework integrating a global cocoa PE with a Ghana CGE model is adopted to comprehensively account for the impacts the two large cocoa producing countries’ policy has on international cocoa prices and to trace effects on agricultural sectors and household incomes in Ghana but also on cocoa producers in other countries. It highlights the differences in costs and benefits of alternative policy options.
