The Cocoa Cluster Development Project (CCDP) in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, announces a new initiative to support business continuity management in this market-led cocoa industry
The Cocoa Cluster Development Project (CCDP) in collaboration with Compete Caribbean Partnership Facility, Ministry of Blue and Green Economy, Agriculture and National Food Security, and the Dominica Export-Import Agency (DEXIA) announces a new initiative to support business continuity management in this market-led cocoa industry.
The CCDP says it has recognized the need for reducing the underlying risks and improving business continuity approaches associated with the Dominican cocoa industry. A proactive integrated approach to risk management with a strong focus on business continuity was adopted. As a result, a Business Continuity (BC) Plan for the cocoa industry has been developed.
Drawing upon key objectives embedded in current policies and regulatory framework and building on good practices and experiences available from existing programmes and projects, the BC Plan identifies priorities for enhanced risk reduction in the cocoa industry, and possible approaches for business continuity. Importantly, the BC Plan is consistent with the National Resilience Development Strategy (NRDS), Climate Resilience and Recovery Plan (CRRP), Agriculture Disaster Risk Management (ADRM) Plan and other related international, regional and national initiatives.
