Improving agricultural practices for cocoa and coffee farmers
This PPG requested by the Department of Agriculture and Livestock of Papua New Guinea was used to:
(i)take stock of the SPS elements of ongoing and planned projects supporting the cocoa and coffee value chains, and to identify critical SPS capacity building needs and possible synergies with other ongoing/planned activities; and
(ii) develop two separate project proposals (i.e. one for each value chain) to strengthen SPS capacity as a means to boost exports of cocoa and coffee.
The developped project proposal aiming to strengthen the food safety and quality management in cocoa value chain was approved by the Working Group in October 2017.
