Colombia: Cacao for Peace Overview

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On January 15, 2016, USDA and USAID executed a participating agency program agreement (PAPA) titled Cacao for Peace. The overall objective of the project is to improve the cacao value chain in Colombia by strengthening key agricultural institutions in the public and private sectors through cooperative research, technical assistance, and extension education. The Cacao for Peace Initiative will provide these institutions the necessary tools and resources so that Colombia can take advantage of the rapidly increasing global demand for chocolate to become a global supplier of cacao, the essential ingredient in chocolate. This initiative will create economic opportunities for the U.S. chocolate and confectionary industries, American agriculture, and thousands of Colombian farmers and their families.
