Papua New Guinea Productive Partnership in Agriculture Project (PPAP)- EU contribution to the Cocoa Component
Cocoa is a major cash crop which provides critical income to a large proportion of rural households in East New Britain and Bougainville. However, since 2006 the outbreak of the cocoa pod borer disease has decimated harvests and jeopardised the livelihoods of thousands of small farmers in both provinces. After the arrival of the insect pest, East New Britain alone saw an 80 % drop of its cocoa production between 2008 and 2012. The PPAP aims to improve the quality of the cocoa production and restore the production to pre-outbreak levels and thus increase the income of smallholder farmers.
