Advocacy for Change for Sustainable Cocoa Landscapes is a four-year Dutch government-funded project implemented by Solidaridad in Ghana since 2016.
The project focuses on enhancing standards to support the adoption of sustainable-driven interventions in the Ghanaian cocoa landscape.
This is done by engaging decision-makers, government agencies, civil society organizations and the private sector to formulate and implement policy reforms on land and tree ownership security to enhance long-term investments in sustainable land-use practices.
As an outcome, Solidaridad has advocated policy recommendations that completely devolve on-farm planted trees and naturally occurring tree ownership to farmers through multi-sectoral national platforms.
