WABiLED and PAPFor together at CBD COP15
In the last few newsletters we told you about the joint initiative between PAPFor and the WABiLED programme (USAID) on the promotion of sustainable cocoa compatible with the maintenance of forests and biodiversity.
At the last meeting of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Montreal, in December 2022, the WABiLED team presented the initiative at a side event on the issue of deforestation around protected areas.
This initiative attracted the attention of a large audience and extended the list of partners with whom the study mission will have to engage. The very first draft of this study has been transmitted and will serve as a basis for the organisation of a regional workshop in the coming months.
