Wawooo so much respect

They say teamwork makes the dream work and the Feed the Future Alliance for Resilient Coffee project in Uganda has proved this! The project which was funded by USAID - US Agency for International Development brought together seven leading international organizations to collectively build the climate resilience of the Ugandan coffee supply chain.

Now that the four-year project has come to an end, the ARC partners endeavor to share the learnings, outcomes and tools developed in the project with the Ugandan coffee sector. Watch this video to learn about the project’s milestones in Uganda!

Feed the Future's Alliance for Resilient Coffee (ARC) has officially phased out! After four years of intensive project work, ARC proved that the global coffee supply chain can become climate-smart and families can be empowered to mitigate climate threats.

In Central America, ARC played a vital role in coffee communities with climate-smart agriculture. Learn more about ARC’s milestones in Guatemala and Honduras by watching the video below!
