CIAT directly engages with the European Cocoa Industry
Monday, 2016/10/17 | 07:55:20

CGIAR Oct 6, 2016 - by Natalia Gutiérrez

 

“If this ship sinks, there won’t be any chocolate in Europe” – To close the European Cocoa Forum held on 15 and 16 September 2016 in Dubrovnik, Croatia, the European Cocoa Association invited the leaders of the European chocolate industry to have dinner on a cruise. As we left the harbor, the ship was suddenly more exposed to the sea and some started to fear for the future of the chocolate supply.

 

Nature could indeed sink cocoa production. Yet, the cause will not be bad weather but climate change if the sector doesn’t take action. Usually there is no need to explain the difference between “unusual” or “bad” weather and climate change at conferences. But this one was different: it hosted industry leaders, traders, warehouse companies, logistics companies, and bankers. This was the entirety of the supply chain between West-African producers and European consumers. These people deal with risks to their businesses on a daily basis. In conversations before the panel discussion on climate change and adaptation, I realized that they needed to be pointed out that climate change is not just a risk like any other.
