Second Cocoa Carbon Site Selection Workshop
February 26, 2010
A one day workshop to review the site assessment process and select three sites at which the Incubator can move forward with feasibility assessments. Specifically, the concept of cocoa carbon and REDD+ were reviewed, and participants received an overview of the 15 potential sites, with brief attention to why 10 of the sites were identified to be less desirable. The five strongest sites were presented in greater detail with attention to opportunities, constraints/challenges, and potential REDD+ plays. The participants then ranked the five sites and based upon this ranking, three sites were identified, including Juabeso (Western Region), Goaso (Brong Ahafo Region), and Assin North (Central Region). 13 participants from 10 stakeholders organizations and institutions participated.
