A quick scan on improving the economic viability of coffee farming

Key stakeholders in the coffee sector and the Global Coffee Platform have identified the economic viability of coffee farming as a key issue to address towards the long-term sustainability of the sector.

While a lot of data has been gathered over the years, it is often inconsistent and difficult to draw common conclusions with which to galvanize collective action. GCP together with TechnoServe have developed this quick scan on small-holder coffee production to focus on potential actions to improve profitability at the farm-level by improving productivity and price and reducing costs.

The study worked with the existing national platforms as well as global organizations to gather data and proposals covering eleven countries: Brazil, Colombia, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru, Indonesia, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

We hope that this quick scan will catalyze action to address the root causes of issues facing the economic viability of coffee farming families around the world. Together through public-private dialogue and coordinated action with key stakeholders we can help ensure thriving livelihoods, conservation of nature and long term supply of quality coffee!
