Core area “Sustainable economic development, training and employment” Improving vocational training and employability
One special focus of the cooperation programme is on training for women and girls, and on support for women-led enterprises. This core area also includes projects under the BMZ's à special initiative “Decent Work for a Just Transition”.
Increasing production and incomes in rural areas
As agriculture is the most important sector of the economy in terms of employment and export earnings, support for the agricultural sector is a focus of Ivorian-German cooperation. The purpose of these efforts is, among other things, to improve the production, processing and marketing methods used by small farmers, to improve their access to loans, and to establish sustainable agricultural value chains, especially for cocoa.
A Green Innovation Centre has been set up with funding from the BMZ's special initiative “Transformation of Agricultural and Food Systems”. The Centre provides support to cocoa farmers.
