Description 
The African Cocoa Initiative (ACI) is a public-private partnership, bringing together the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF), cocoa industry members, the Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH) and USAID, in concert with key government institutions in Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria. ACI is a 5-year program with the goal of institutionalizing effective public and private sector models to support sustainable productivity growth and improved food security on diversified cocoa farms in West and Central Africa. The program aims to double cocoa productivity for 100,000 farm households and in doing so raise per capita income by 150-200%.
