|Project Title||Cacao for Peace Initiative|

|Number of Interns||2|
On January 15, 2016, USDA and USAID entered into an interagency agreement titled Cacao for Peace. The Cacao for Peace Initiative will provide the necessary tools and resources to empower Colombian agricultural institutions to become a leading global supplier of fine cacao while taking advantage of the rapidly increasing global demand for chocolate. This initiative will create economic opportunities for both American chocolate manufacturers and thousands of Colombian farmers and their families.
The intern will research the cacao industry in different countries around the world to provide a framework for the Colombian project.
