Cacao for Peace

Cacao for Peace

Cacao for Peace is a five-year USAID-USDA international development project that joins experts from the U.S. and Colombia with the U.N. and the Peace Corps to promote the cultivation of cacao as a sustainable alternative to growing coca and marijuana. Penn State, a world leader in cacao research, is a key partner in this effort. In November 2016, Penn State's experts organized a crash course in cacao growing in the remote Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta region on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.
