Please identify your cacao plot by either zooming in on the map and clicking the area of interest or by drawing a polygon around your cacao plot. To draw a polygon, first click on the polygon icon to the left of the map, and then click 'Finish' when you're done. Alternatively, you can enter the coordinates (in decimal degrees) in the box below. However, if you want to obtain recommendations on cacao agroforestry systems for your cacao plot, drawing a polygon is the only option.

Click in the box and select the site conditions in the cacao plot (select all relevant conditions). It is not necessary to select a condition if none of these conditions are present.

Click in the boxes below, select the tree planting objectives, and specify their weight (importance). It is not necessary to make a selection in each of the categories.

Which climate change scenario to take into account? (SSP2.45: intermediate scenario, SSP5.85: worst-case scenario)

Do you want to exclude exotic species?

Until which year do you want to take into account climate change projections?

Do you want to also include in the report information about the change in cacao phenology in the last five years in Peru?

In order to guide the selection of propagation material adapted to a particular area, maps with ecogeographical zones were developed. The map with ecogeographical zones were developed only for Peru and Ecuador and not for the four Central American countries (Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala), as a different methodology is used for the selection of the list of gene banks, clonal gardens and nurseries in these four countries.

Ecogeographical zones are regions characterized by similar climatic and environmental variables within the suitable area for cacao and define areas within which propagation material can be moved and used with a minimal risk of maladaptation and disruption of genetic patterns. The ecogeographical zones illustrated in the map are the result of a cluster analysis based on soil and climate variables. In order to predict possible changes in the distribution of ecogeographical zones under different scenarios of climate change, the current map has been projected to different climate change scenarios (RCP4.5 and RCP8.5) over different time horizons (2030, 2050 and 2070). If the most suitable ecogeographical zone for a restoration site is expected to change in the future, it is recommended to source propagation material from areas within the current ecogeographical zone as well as from ecogeographical zone predicted under future conditions.
