The “Coconut-Based Coffee and/or Cacao Enterprise Development Project (C3EDP)” aims to support smallholder coconut farmers through intercropping with coffee and cacao, maximize use of coconut lands, increase the sufficiency of local coffee and cacao, develop community-based enterprises, and capacitate farmers to conserve and protect the natural resources. ### (photos by Adonis Buhayan, DA-AFID)
