Current trends in the global market for cocoa and cocoa products suggest strong potential for further growth ahead for Ghanaian cocoa. Yet, a number of risks threaten to derail the subsector’s recovery. A deeper understanding of these risks and their existing potential to inflict damage and undermine growth is essential for the development of an appropriate risk management strategy. The purpose of this current study was to assist the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) to: 1) gain a better understanding of which risks pose the greatest threat to Ghana’s cocoa supply chain; 2) assess existing gaps in current risk management mechanisms; and 3) identify investments that would best serve to address those gaps.It is hoped that this study will contribute to a better understanding among policy-makers, COCOBOD officials, and other stakeholders of the most important risks facing the domestic supply chain.
