REFORESTATION, CONSERVATION, ORIGIN
In Ethiopia, it is estimated that over 5 million smallholder farmer families are engaged in coffee farming and a total of 25 million peoples livelihoods depend on coffee production and other activities along its value chain.
Yield levels on smallholder coffee farms in Ethiopia can be much higher. Improving extension, provision of improved planting materials, financial services and supporting market access are solutions. Many households in Ethiopia also face food insecurity. Addressing gender relations inside households and communities, population growth and low levels of literacy can hamper a shift to a more commercial approach towards agriculture. All of which is addressed through the implementation of the C.A.F.E. project.
Projects in Ethiopia are implemented by Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung Ethiopia.
