    Preliminary impact appraisal of cocoa value chain rehabilitation in Ghana: 2018–2028 2021
    Also available in:

    Preliminary assessments of the cocoa value chain from using FAO's EX-ACT Value Chain tool show that it has a significant potential to improve farmer incomes while mitigating climate change. With a renovation and rehabilitation strategy of implementing cocoa shadow agroforestry in low-yielding old plantation areas, the mitigation impact of the value chain reaches approximately 146 million tCO2e in the next 20 years. This translates to a carbon footprint of – 5.6 tCO2e for every tonne of cocoa produced. Additionally, the gross income per farmer increases by almost 38 percent - up to USD 10.46 per working day by 2028. Most of the value-added coming from the upgraded scenario stems can be attributed to the producer – more than USD 1 billion in an aggregate value added of over USD 1.6 billion by 2028. Moreover, the cocoa value chain will create an additional 277 669 jobs, and increase the climate resiliency of almost 1.85 million hectares of landscape in Ghana.

    Rice value chain analysis in Tamil Nadu, India
    EX-ACT value chain case study

    This report is a case study of a multi-impact appraisal of a paddy value chain in India. The value chain is analysed from production to the distribution of rice into inner markets, comparing the performance of an upgrading scenario to the current situation. In the present case, farmers practice 1 to 3 rice crops a year (conventional rice). With the project, a more sustainable agro-ecological rice cultivation, namely Rice System Intensification (SRI), will be proposed to them. Adopting this methodology will improve water-use efficiency, soil conditions, household resilience to food security (high income, food availability and reduction in post-harvest losses) and self-organisation. Finally, the implementation of the SRI methodology on the project area will lead to a decrease in GHG emissions (mainly CH4 from rice cultivation) with a mitigation potential of about 4 tCO2-e per hectare per year.

    EX-ACT value chain introduction
    Multi-impact appraisal of GHG emissions, climate mitigation, resilience & income generated through development of agricultural value chains

    The EX-ACT Value Chain tool (EX-ACT VC), developed in 2016, covers value chains for crops, livestock, fisheries, and aquaculture. EX-ACT VC methodology provides both a quantified socio-economic appraisal (at both the micro- and at the meso-levels (i.e. by agent, by stage and by sector)), and an environmental carbon-balance appraisal (climate mitigation, adaptation and resilience). Designed for multi-impact appraisal, the tool provides performance assessments for value chains in the following areas: (i) climate mitigation (GHG emissions, carbon footprint, economic return of climate mitigation), (ii) climate resilience, (iii) socio-economic performances (value added, income and employment generated), and other environmental factors (such as water use and energy use). These can be applied for either the current chain scenario, or for assessing an upgraded scenario
