Washington — The World Cocoa Foundation (WCF) is accepting applications now through October 1 for grants that can be used toward farm productivity and cocoa quality research projects in Eastern Indonesia.

In partnership with the Ford Foundation’s Indonesian Cocoa Applied Research & Extension Grant, WCF is offering up to four awards of $60,000 to Indonesian research institutes, universities or non-governmental organizations. WCF says eligible projects are those that improve the quality of life for farmers in Indonesia, the world’s third-largest cocoa-producing country. WCF is seeking applicants that will help address three key challenges Indonesian farmers face: managing pests and diseases, aging cocoa farms and product quality, the organization reports.
