IDH convenes companies, CSOs, governments and others in public-private partnerships. Together we drive the joint design, co-funding and prototyping of new economically viable approaches to realize green & inclusive growth at scale in 11 commodity sectors and 12 sourcing areas in 40 countries with over 300 companies. In cocoa we aim to end poverty for 300.000 cocoa famers and halt deforestation. To that end we recently convened the Cocoa & Forest Initiative that brought together the governments of Côte D’Ivoire and Ghana and leading governments in far reaching agreement to stop deforestation. Together with Barry Callebout IDH developed a ground breaking risk sharing partnership with IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, of USD 9 million to cover up to 103,000 smallholder cocoa farmers in Cote d’Ivoire by 2020.
