The problem posed to the cocoa sector by gender inequality in Côte d’Ivoire is twofold: First, since women perform 45% of the work on cocoa farms, it is inefficient from an economic standpoint not to view them as farmers and to fail to facilitate their participation in training and their access to inputs. Second, given women’s role in their families and homes, their social and economic marginalization has implications for the health, nutrition and education of their families. Involving women more systematically thus has the potential to increase the productivity of cocoa farms, and to improve the wellbeing of families and communities.
