FARMINGPORTAL_CO_ZA 16/09/15 New project to help cocoa farmers tackle climate change

The project, which targets cocoa-based farming systems in Ghana, leverages existing value chain interventions and will translate climate science into actionable strategies for farmers and supporting actors including industry, certifiers and investors. The Mainstreaming Climate-Smart Cocoa in Ghana project will assess the climate change exposure of cocoa systems, develop appropriate practices with farmers by incorporating cash crops and food crops to increase resilience of the systems and classify the practices in adaptation guidelines. The three-year project valued at US$2.8 million was presented at the Our Common Future under Climate Change Conference in Paris, France last month (8 July). In May this year, CGIAR, through its Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), launched the initiative in Ghana.

Un rapport rédigé par des scientifiques spécialistes du climat du Centre international pour l’agriculture tropicale (CIAT) basé en Colombie, commandé par la Fondation Bill et Melinda Gates, prévoit que « la hausse des températures engendrera des chutes drastiques de la production de cacao d’ici 2030 au Ghana et en Côte d’Ivoire ».

AGRITRADE 07/01/12 Impact du changement climatique sur la production de cacao en Afrique de l’Ouest

Le Ghana et la Côte d’Ivoire produisent actuellement environ 53 % de l’offre mondiale commercialisée de cacao, le Ghana produisant un cacao de première qualité qui fait figure de référence pour les marchés mondiaux. D’après le rapport, « des températures plus élevées signifient que les cacaoyers sensibles à la chaleur lutteront pour obtenir suffisamment d’eau lors de la période de croissance, réduisant ainsi le développement des cabosses de cacao ».

Cependant, le Conseil du cacao du Ghana a minimisé le rapport, affirmant qu’il met en place des « mesures pour réduire l’impact du changement climatique sur la production de cacao dans le pays ».

INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR TROPICAL AGRICULTURE 29/09/11 Africa’s Chocolate Meltdown: climate change could threaten cocoa farmers. Climate change not only threatens the production of staple food crops, but could transform the cherished chocolate bar into a luxury few can afford, according to a new study released today.

INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR TROPICAL AGRICULTURE 29/09/11 Africa’s Chocolate Meltdown: climate change could threaten cocoa farmers

Enjoyed by sweet-toothed consumers the world-over, more than half of the world’s chocolate comes from the cocoa plantations of Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire, where hundreds of thousands of smallholder farmers supply lucrative Fair-trade markets in developed countries. But the new research by climate scientists at the Colombia-based International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT, by its Spanish acronym), reveals that an expected annual temperature rise of more than two degrees Celsius by 2050 will leave many of West Africa’s cocoa-producing areas too hot for chocolate.

Warmer conditions mean the heat-sensitive cocoa trees will struggle to get enough water during the growing season, curtailing the development of cocoa pods, containing the prized cocoa bean – the key ingredient in chocolate production.

AGROMETEOROLOGY 04/11/08 Cocoa and climate change: can the lame help the blind? Climate change, this blind force acting with changing rainfall patterns and amounts, and with increasing temperatures, influences cocoa production most often negatively.

AGROMETEOROLOGY 04/11/08 Cocoa and climate change: can the lame help the blind?

In many places, with more and also more aggressive extreme events and higher climate variability as well, this becomes worse. Indeed, it appears as if in quite some places the vulnerability of cocoa production to adverse climatic conditions will be exacerbated (e.g. Anim-Kwapong and Frimpong, 2005). Definitely, that is, if no or too little action is taken. Kees StigterAgromet Vision (Bondowoso, Indonesia and Bruchem, The Netherlands) [cjstigter@usa.net] Introduction Trees store much of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and therefore also cocoa trees can mitigate global warming (Sommariba, 2006).

Reading the literature on cocoa production, with only few exceptions the industry has very often been paralysed by insustainability from a series of causes (e.g. Cocoa and climate change: can the lame help the blind? — International Society for Agricultural Meteorology. Climate change, this blind force acting with changing rainfall patterns and amounts, and with increasing temperatures, influences cocoa production most often negatively.

MARS - La portée mondiale du cacao - Le changement climatique met le cacao en danger dans le monde entier.

Depuis sa culture ancienne en Amérique centrale, la production du cacao s'étend désormais à tout le globe. Aujourd'hui le cacao est cultivé dans plus de 35 pas; les plus grandes régions de production sont situées en Afrique occidentale, Amérique latine et Asie. La récolte annuelle s'élève à quelque 3 millions de tonnes avec une valeur marchande d'env. 5 milliards de dollars US. Le cacao est cultivé par 6,5 millions d'agriculteurs, souvent sur des fermes d'une surface cultivable de 5 hectares ou moins. Le cacao n'est pas seulement important pour les agriculteurs; la base de l'existence d'environ 40 millions de gens dans le monde dépend plutôt du cacao.

En un coup d'œil Le cacao est particulièrement sensible à la teneur en eau du sol, et tant la quantité totale que le moment des chutes de pluie annuelles sont décisifs pour la récolte.
