DCS 2012 Highlights

2012 was a busy year for DCS, with little time to post or report on developments.  Key projects and clients included Herakles Farms and PepsiCo.

With Herakles, DCS was proud to work with the company on launching their participatory land-use mapping process.  Activities included visiting Cameroon to train the Sustainability Team, as well as visits to local villages for initial meetings and discussions.  Additionally, DCS organized and led a two-day “Collaboration in Conservation & Development” workshop in Buea, Cameroon to help Herakles engage project-affected communities, government stakeholders, civil society organizations, non-governmental organizations, academics and the private sector.  The event was lauded by stakeholders as a major positive turning point in the company’s outreach.

With PepsiCo, DCS traveled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to the World Economic Forum.  There, DCS continued its work to support PepsiCo in its New Vision for Agriculture Commitments.
