This paper addresses the role of women in decision making at farm-level particularly in a male dominated cash crop environment like the cocoa agro-forestry households. Not involving women in decision making could be counterproductive. Although not immediately related to sustainable cocoa as such, this paper implies that when you involve women in decision making, this might lead to other, more efficient production processes.
