Guide to conducting risk analyses for cocoa producing countries
The SÜDWIND Institute, financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, has produced an action guide and analyses for Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria, Ecuador, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Liberia, Togo, Sierra Leone and Bolivia. The document aims to help companies deal responsibly with human rights and environmental risk assessments in their cocoa supply chains. Building on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the OECD/FAO Guidelines for Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains, this study takes up an important aspect of the guidelines, the so-called risk analysis. A step-by-step approach is proposed: Companies should - if they have not already done so - build up knowledge about the national and international requirements for risk analyses of supply chains.
