Cocoa in Context - Masterclass

£890.00

Description

Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 April 2018 (two day seminar)

Cocoa in Context: Academic knowledge transfer to promote sustainability and good practices in cocoa cultivation

The Cocoa in Context Masterclass at Leicester Castle Business School is intended to help companies and other stakeholders working in the cocoa sector to put in place more effective interventions and policies based on sound academic research. Issues related to the sustainability and ethics of cocoa have gained enormous viability in the public domain in recent years and have placed unprecedented pressure on a variety of stakeholders to address wide-ranging issues such as child labour, gender inequality and low income/productivity.

Many of these issues have been the subject of in-depth research and have generated interesting findings which could help inform policymaking and strengthen the effectiveness of interventions. This research, however, does not always reach external stakeholders because findings are not put on open access. It is also not readily usable by non-academic audiences because it is written in specialist academic language and in lengthy formats.

To overcome these issues, this Masterclass offers a translation of some of the research on particular topics in a user-friendly and non-academic format.

Le Contexte du Cacao - Masterclass

£890.00

Description

Le Contexte du Cacao: Transfert de connaissances académiques pour promouvoir la durabilité et les bonnes pratiques dans la culture du cacao


Lundi 23 et mardi 24 avril 2018

Cet atelier sur la culture durable du cacao est organisé par Leicester Castle Business School à De Montfort University au Royaume-Uni. L’atelier a été conçu pour aider les entreprises et autres parties prenantes travaillant dans le secteur du cacao à mettre en place des interventions et des politiques plus efficaces fondées sur des travaux de recherche universitaires solides.

L’industrie du chocolat fait face à d’énormes pressions résultants de problèmes sociaux et économiques très divers dans les pays producteurs de cacao, tels que le travail des enfants, les revenus faibles des producteurs, le manque d’infrastructure ou d’investissements dans les plantations.

Bien que ces thèmes aient été abordé par de nombreux chercheurs les travaux de recherche qui ont été effectués sont rarement communiqués à l’industrie du chocolat où ils pourraient aider à mieux comprendre et donc à mieux réagir à ces problèmes, voir même à les anticiper. L’atelier permettra donc aux participants d’en savoir plus sur les travaux de recherche courants liés à la durabilité du cacao et de pouvoir mettre en pratique ces connaissances.
