Coronavirus pandemic: financing deforestation-free supply chains in Africa

As of: March 2021

Communities in (sub-)tropical Africa dependent on forests for their livelihoods have been hard-hit financially by Covid-19. Investments in the value chains for speciality coffee and cocoa in western and eastern Africa can promote deforestation-free production while also supporting reforestation and economic growth. The Regeneration initiative supports the financing of sustainably produced coffee and cocoa in western and eastern Africa. The initiative is targeting distributors, who can purchase products from smallholders and agricultural cooperatives with the operating capital provided by IKI. The initiative brings together a network of distributors in many African countries that the two implementing organisations have set up in the course of various programmes conducted in recent years. The initiative’s model also has the potential to be expanded step by step to encompass other deforestation-free supply chains, countries and continents. /
