This will be done by monitoring activities on the ground including: of GAPs, human rights, trade to make sure actors play according to rules.
Accountability is essential for the progress of every supply chain. Therefore, stakeholders in the cocoa sector must be accountable for their actions. We are focused to work together to put in place structures at cocoa producing countries that make it possible to hold actors responsible, accountable based on their cooperate responsibility at farm level.
It is of great importance for cocoa farmers to independently manage their farming business by themselves, we collaborate with partners to support and promote farmers and farm workers empowerment. We call on stakeholders in the value chain to respect farmers independence and work with them as partners.
