Invitation to Tender: Consultancy (Ghana) – Feasibility and Design of a Sustainable Cocoa Landscape Finance Mechanism

Partnerships for Forests supported projects in Western Ghana have developed innovative landscape governance models for land and natural resource management with the ultimate goal of ensuring that cocoa and other commodities are produced and sourced within the Western cocoa belt of Ghana in a sustainable way.

In pursuance of pathways to secure financing for transforming and sustaining deforestation-free landscapes while promoting collective action, Palladium seeks to procure a consultancy company  to conduct a political economy and feasibility assessment for designing a sustainable cocoa landscape finance mechanism (SCLFM) in Ghana that allows for collective action and pre-competitive collaboration and engagement amongst key stakeholders. The SCLFM will be used for monetising ecosystem services linked to the major value career – cocoa and creating the business case for shared economic value for companies and communities for conserving the standing forest. The design of the mechanism will be contingent upon the results and outcome of the political economy and feasibility analysis.
