How can we help them retain more value?
As part of their ongoing research and policy dialogue efforts, UNCTAD and the International Coffee Organisation (ICO) will hold a workshop on Fostering Development in Coffee-Exporting Countries on 18 February 2020 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
The objectives of this workshop are to:
- Examine and debate the current issues and challenges of the international coffee market, in light of the findings of the Coffee Development Report 2019 published by ICO and gather inputs for the 2020 edition of the Coffee Development Report on “Sustainable Value Chains and Sourcing”.
- Discuss current and prospective measures regarding fostering development in coffee-exporting countries with a focus on sustainable sourcing practices based on a range of approaches.
- Discuss the challenges and opportunities of bolstering value addition in the downstream value chains of coffee-producing countries
