A screenshot from the Ecometrica platform shows a new cocoa landscape land-classification map produced by the Ghana Forestry Commission.

Forestry Commission of Ghana (FCG) is stepping up its commitment to help end deforestation due to cocoa farming by adopting the Ecometrica mapping platform in its production and delivery of maps and forest monitoring information, which are at the heart of the Cocoa & Forests Initiative Frameworks for Action (CFI), agreed by Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire at the COP23 UN Climate Change Conference.

Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, chief executive of FCG, stated that the accurate and timely information, accessible to all stakeholders, are critical to the future success of the CFI, sustainable forest management and reliable information for international forest monitoring obligations in Ghana.

“The Ecometrica Platform will provide access to essential mapping and monitoring information to cocoa industry, stakeholders and national institutions involved in the CFI, to ensure compliance with legal and voluntary commitments.”
