The Cavally region is one of the main forest areas of Côte d'Ivoire. It is located in the west of Côte d'Ivoire, in the peripheral zone of the Taï National Park. It covers a total area of 14,150 Km2. The main commodities are cocoa, rubber and timber. At the local level, several private sector companies supply cocoa, coffee, rubber, timber and rice, but there was no initiative or cooperation between these actors before the first convening made by IDH in 2018.
