The Cocoa Forest project is soon to come to an end.

16 August 2023
6 years have passed since we started this mad project: bringing together Dominican academics, scientists, NGOs, industrialists, artisans, cooperatives and cocoa producers around the desire to guarantee sustainable cocoa culture, while remaining respectful of the environment and offering not only decent but attractive salaries to cocoa producers.

For the past 6 years you have been able to follow the progress of the work through articles on the website www.relais-deserts.net as well as on the official website cacaoforest.org

Before we close the project, we would like to share with you our latest achievements and in particular the implementation of the PRACAO programme to ensure the sustainability of the work of the Cocoa Forest.

PRACAO structure

The National Dominican Cocoa Agroforestry Rehabilitation Programme (PRACAO) is national in scope and represents a budget of US $80 million over a period of 12 years in 4 successive stages gradually covering the 4 major cocoa production regions of the country.

Our activities with regards to the general public

Cacao Forest is also involved in raising awareness of the Dominican public about the cocoa sector and agroforestry.

Thus, representatives of Cacao Forest participated in the "Juntos somos verde" Festival in June 2023 in Santo Domingo. Once again this year we will participate in the Dominican Chocolate Festival, for its third edition which will take place on August 19 and 27, 2023.
