Meeting Ethiopia's Bonn Challenge target: Restoring degraded coffee landscapes
As of: September 2018
Objective and activities
The Project contributes to Ethiopia’s Bonn Challenge via the establishment of sustainable garden coffee systems. It supports the members of local coffee cooperatives and the local private sector of the coffee value chain. To this regards, authorities at different levels are supported in order to develop supportive conditions for its implementation.Three work packages are implemented to achieve the objective: (1) A feasibility study, considering also adaptation & mitigation benefits, climate change-related risks, financing gaps is conducted. (2) Based on these results, up to 4,000 farmers are trained on garden coffee practices. In cooperation with partners, farmer-led garden coffee restoration and management models are co-created. (3) A consortium with private and public partners will be established with dedicated implementation partners, in order to specify business plans and to develop a strategy for up-scaling.
