a. Context
Natural rubber is attracting an increasing interest from rubber industries thanks to its positive image as a renewable raw material, its technical properties and the increase in oil prices that affects the cost of synthetic rubber. While Africa represents only 5% of global natural rubber production, natural rubber has been targeted by several Western African countries as an opportunity for rural development and poverty alleviation. Among other perennial crops, it has a special potential to generate many employment opportunities and local added-value.

The Government of Ghana (GoG) in particular has adopted a Rubber Master Plan in 2001 with a view to expand the areas under rubber tree cultivation from 14,000ha of mainly industrial estates to 50,000ha. Such a significant expansion can only happen if many small private farmers broadly adopt rubber tree cultivation and grow it on their own.

West Africa has significant advantages for rubber tree cultivation in terms of land, climate, labour cost and proximity to North Atlantic markets. But it also has major impediments: lack of private investors and operators, shortage of know-how to extend the sub-sector, lack of government financing and lack of technical advisory and financial services to farmers.

A critical barrier to widespread development of rubber tree cultivation is the time gap between the investment and first returns (around 7 years), while small scale farmers cannot afford to immobilize land, cash and work time without revenue for so long. Therefore it is critical that a financial package is proposed so that farmers can adopt rubber tree cultivation, which socio-economic studies show they are very eager to do.

The GoG has successfully implemented the pilot Rubber Outgrower Plantation Projects I and II and is launching phase III. In doing so, it has had some support from Overseas Development Assistance (ODA), in particular the World Bank, AFD (French Development Agency) and KfW (German Development Corporation). Achievements so far include:








4,055ha planted with 1,000 outgrowers in Ghana's Western Region, Creation and...
