The purpose of the exploratory assessment is to determine the capacity of community members of Abricots and Bonbon, to establish a pilot based on an agroforestry model, and a cooperative model based on bee production. The methodology utilizes active listening, observation and understanding the obstacles and and cultural barriers that may limit economic development. FAO desires to develop actions to support these communities by facilitating the implementation of community nurseries based on a sustainable agroforestry model and managed by and strengthened by a local cooperative structure. It is anticipated that these actions will directly impact the agricultural sector in these communities such as beekeeping, fruit processing and cocoa.
