Focused on farmers
Prosperous farmers and farming systems
Cocoa Compass is not only focused on lifting cocoa farmers out of extreme poverty, it is also about taking a step beyond to help them achieve a level of income that allows for more than just survival.
Farmers must be able to earn enough to cover their basic needs of food, water, housing, education, healthcare, transportation and clothing, as well as manage unexpected costs.
Investing in nature
Regeneration of the living world
Cocoa Compass focuses on the co-existence of prosperous farms and thriving communities with healthy ecosystems to both reduce and eventually reverse deforestation.
There is also the need to work with governments and rural farming communities to support environmental stewardship that balances improvements in cocoa farmer livelihoods with the coexistence of protected forests, industrial plantations, subsistence crops, and perennial crops.
