Sustainable Coffee Programme

Thu, 10/19/2017 - 11:53

Coffee is the largest agricultural export product in value after rice in Vietnam. The sector brings a turnover of over USD 2.7 billion yearly and provides an income for approximately 3 million smallholder farmers. However, production has not kept up with the growing global demand, as it has suffered from under-investment, poor production practices and adverse climatic conditions. To respond to the growing, global sustainable coffee consumption market, the Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development (IPSARD) has worked with the Crops Department to prepare for institutional reforms in the coffee sector.

The Sustainable Coffee Programme, funded by the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), supports IPSARD with this work in Vietnam. In order to facilitate the implementation of sustainable coffee production at field level, IDH contracted SNV to be the national implementation coordinator in Vietnam. The programme, which runs from September 2012 until the end of 2016, aims to further increase sustainable coffee production in a pre-competitive manner and make coffee farmers more resilient in an ever-changing market. An important focus of the programme is on increasing production, yields and export availability of sustainably grown coffee. The programme also works on the effective implementation of standards, improving access to finance for farmers, and mitigating the effects of climate change.
