    1. 1. Research for DevelopmentSome components of Spatial Support<br />
    2. 2. Spatial Targeting<br />Value Chain<br />Disease mapping<br />Services <br />Trends<br />
    3. 3. Spatial Targeting<br />A multi-criteria GIS site selection for sustainable cocoa development in West Africa<br />
    4. 4. World Cocoa production<br />Production area covers Central America to South America from the western Pacific coast to the Brazilian <br />West Africa –Guinea to Cameroon except Benin<br />Asia –Indonesia and Malaysia<br />From 1960, World cocoa production has increased, from 1.2 to 3.6 million tons<br />
    5. 5. West Africa Cocoa production<br />~ 70% of World Cocoa produced in West Africa<br />The region has increased production to meet rise in demand<br />Côte d’Ivoire is the leading producer despite the political crisis <br />American and Asian regions have been experiencing relative stagnation<br />
    6. 6. World Cocoa Export <br />Cocoa is mainly produced in developing countries<br />Consumed essentially in industrialized countries<br />Chocolate and confectionaries industry are the main users<br />
    7. 7.
    8. 8. Goals of the GIS component<br />To employ spatial multi-criteria approach in decision making<br />To identify area that has potential for intensification while avoiding deforestation <br />To identify area that has potential for impact on cocoa household income <br />To identify priority areas by national policy and cocoa industry partners investment<br />To identify suitable cocoa growing communities for intervention projects<br />
    9. 9. Cocoa Land suitability <br />Climatic and soil suitability for Cocoa in Nigeria<br />This suggests that Cocoa cultivation can expand into more states than where it is currently being grown<br />
    10. 10. Cocoa Socio economic environment <br />Cocoa production<br />is high in Ondo,Ogun, Osun & Cross River and low in Oyo, Taraba and Adamawa states<br />Food farm size indicates potential for food security in cocoa producing areas implying more resources to cocoa production<br />
    11. 11. Demographic and infrastructural conditions in Cocoa growing area<br />High population density <br />indicates high labour potential<br />but also suggests negative<br />land availability for cocoa farm expansion<br />Well organised farmer adopts<br />technology more easily and <br />has high economic impact<br />
    12. 12. Suitable LGA selected areas<br />Result of combining all criteria, biophysical, <br />socio-economic,<br />demographic<br /> and national policy <br />Final selected area<br />after forest reserve<br />area were masked <br />out to avoid deforestation<br />
    13. 13. Unleashing the Power of Cassava in Africa (UPOCA)<br />UPOCA aims to deploy improved<br /> technologies/varieties to maximize production,<br />commercialization, value addition and utilization<br />of cassava in 7 Africa Countries<br />GhanaMalawiSierra Leone NigeriaTanzaniaDRC Mozambique <br />
    14. 14. Sierra Leone –five new cassava processing centers establishedNigeria -High Quality Cassava Flour producers and end users <br />

    18. 18. Probable Trends……<br />Increased user base. Wider user gap<br />Centralized database – multiple users<br />Technology driven, responding to contemporary needs<br />Interactive, real time <br />Partnerships and collaborations<br />
    19. 19. Constraints…….<br />Absorbing capacity of user/user group<br />Gap between available technology and utilisation<br /> Constraints within an environment in utilizing it<br />
