"Can policy achieve a Living Income for Cocoa Farmers in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana? And its implications."
by Boysen, Ole, Emanuele Ferrari, Valeria Ferreira, Victor Nechifor and Pascal Tillie

The study develops a model framework to analyse the impacts of national and international policies to achieve a living income for cocoa farmers in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana, considering that these countries produce a dominant share of global cocoa. Existing studies have shown that this might require large interventions, possibly of a magnitude of increase of factor two. As the cocoa sector in these countries is of mayor importance in terms of contribution to GDP, employment and export and government revenue, this study goes beyond present discussions and considers various policy sets to achieve this goal and assesses the impacts on cocoa farmers' incomes but also on farmers in other sectors as well as the wider economy, in addition to impacts on the cocoa sectors on other countries.
