Ghana Cocoa Forest REDD+ Programme (GCFRP)

The Ghana Cocoa Forest REDD+ Programme (GCFRP) is the premiere program fully developed under the Ghana REDD+ Strategy. The GCFRP aims to significantly reduce carbon emissions resulting from cocoa expansion into forest areas through the promotion of appropriate climate smart cocoa production systems to increase cocoa yields and improve rural livelihoods and economies, and with the potential to attract USD 50 million in payment for emission reductions.
