Sustainable Technologies to Boost Productivity, Resilience to Severe Climate, Coffee Quality, and Livelihoods of Brazilian Coffee Farmers

Fri, 10/27/2017 - 16:39

This project focuses on training small and medium farmers to improve coffee sustainability through smart, clean and efficient technologies. Trainings and technologies ultimately aim to address coffee quality and provide means to access better markets. Resilience against severe climate conditions is developed through smart and low cost practices on soil, plant and pest management in order to increase yields and sustainability while lowering costs. Moreover, the advantages of being organized into groups, associations and cooperatives (such as bulk input buying and selling coffee as a group) are highlighted. Lastly, trainings have a specific focus on increasing the number of women in leadership and entrepreneurial positions. As a result of the project, a more stable supply of sustainable Brazilian coffee will be available for export while simultaneously improving farmers’ quality of life

Strengthening the smallholder Robusta farmer in OKU Selatan, Indonesia

Fri, 10/27/2017 - 16:04

"This project aims to improve the profitability, through improved productivity and efficiency of coffee production and to develop strong, accountable, resilient farmer organizations for Indonesian smallholder Robusta farming households in Sumatera Selatan.

This is achieved firstly by organizing smallholders into farmer organizations based on membership that provide farmers with support and improve their access to markets and services. Within farmer groups, training and technical assistance will be made available in order to increase coffee yields and economic efficiency through improved harvest and post-harvest practices. Through this project farmers will have a better understanding of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), more entrepreneurial opportunities and coffee households can become independent. The project has a focus on climate change adaption (with specific mention of tackling erosion and using integrated farm management for sustainable production systems) and an emphasis on gender equity and youth involvement."

The Ecosystem Chain Scale in a Sustainable Smallholders Coffee Business

Mon, 09/11/2017 - 14:41

This project aims to address the needs of Indonesian coffee farmers in the AMSTIRDAM (Ampel Gading, Sumber Manjing Wetan, Tirtoyudo, and Dampit sub-districts) region and in the process, expand the partnership between PT Asal Jaya and farmers for a greater supply of high quality green coffee and increased prosperity and stability in the region. The project intends to facilitate a 20% increase in productivity per year. Farmers who join the programme will be grouped into independent 'Sustainable Agricultural Business Clusters' (SABCs) and will benefit from better prices through collective marketing. Individual farmers will gain knowledge and skills, making them more resistant against climate change and market risks. Beyond this, 108 innovation and learning Farmer Driven Research (FDR) centers are being created to develop and test new coffee seedling varietals and use new technology in an integrated coffee-farming model. The FDR will function as learning destinations for coffee farmers of the AMSTIRDAM districts and beyond.

Parallel to this, waste water treatment will be available to 60% of farm households included in this project and Nariño river basins will be reforested.
