Cocoa quality test in Sierra Leone, FAO/Cora Dankers

Coffee and cocoa
To provide a basis for the commodity strategy development process in West and Central Africa, FAO presented an analysis of the cocoa and coffee production and marketing systems in the region.  The report provides a basis to identify technical, institutional and policy options toward better cocoa and coffee strategies and revenue-raising diversification opportunities.


Cereals and other staple crops
To inform a regional workshop on policy formulation and institutional development for cereal and staple crop markets an in-depth study of the cotton-cereal systems has been commissioned. The paper covers production characteristics, supply chain structures, institutional and policy environments and concludes with institutional and policy options.
