This manual, developed by the World Cocoa Foundation on behalf of CocoaAction companies, describes the Community Development package in detail. CocoaAction’s Community Development package is an innovative approach under which companies have committed to aligning their efforts in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana under a common set of actions and aims, and a harmonized set of indicators through which success will be measured in terms of learning, outcomes and impacts.

This implementation manual lays out the different components of the CocoaAction Community Development package and intends to give strategic rather than technical guidance to the companies (and their implementing partners). The manual describes a core set of interventions that represent the minimum set of community development interventions that will take place in the communities and that will complement the CocoaAction productivity package interventions.
