Must read

Now in its 4th edition, the annual African Coffee Sustainability Forum will take place on 12 February 2014 in Bujumbura, Burundi in collaboration between the African Fine Coffee Association (AFCA), the Sustainable Coffee Program powered by IDH, the 4C Association and Cafe Africa.

Once again, the Forum takes place against the backdrop of the 11th Africa Fine Coffee Conference and Exhibition (13 – 15 February 2014).

These two major coffee events set the tone for information exchange, networking and the sustainable development of the coffee sector in Africa each year.

This time round, coffee experts, and representatives of producers, traders, roasters, sustainability standards, and other key players on the local and international coffee scene will convene in Burundi’s capital, the port city of Bujumbura located on Lake Tanganyika.

Under the theme, “Sustainable Coffee Farming as a Business for African Coffee Farmers: Learnings, challenges & joint efforts for solutions”, the Forum will address key factors influencing the adoption of sustainability practices by African coffee farmers by looking at:

  • A Business Case for Sustainable Coffee Production: insights and key lessons learned from studies on Ethiopia and Uganda
  • Connecting Coffee & Climate change and gender
  • Further agenda topics include:
  • A summary of the results from the Workshop on “Coffee Farming as a Family Business”
  • A presentation on ITC’s STANDARDS MAP v.2.0 – to be launched soon
