"We can achieve more #coffee with less #water in #Vietnam through public-private partnerships & understanding socio-econ drivers for smallholder #farmers" - says Dave D’Haeze @HRNStiftung (work carried out together with @IWMI_ / @WLE_CGIAR). #HappeningNow

Meet coffee farmers and industry leaders discussing their needs. During
#WorldofCoffee in Berlin,
initiated an important discussion in which ICP-shareholders brought together both ends of the value chain.

Our Annual Report 2019 is out. Excited to share the achievements, learnings and next plans of our projects for smallholder coffee farmer families. Our work in six countries together with @HRNStiftung goes on even under #COVIDー19 ! Via @Comunicaffe1

Thru the Alliance for Resilient Coffee project, @HRNStiftung supported Betty Nduga to establish a #CSA nursery that also hosts learning visits for #coffee #farmers and local leaders. @FAO built her a green house and installed water sprinklers in the nursery


Challenging times call for long-term strategies! As cases start to reach the highest peak in Central America, HRNS’ strategy responds to COVID-19 and supports smallholder families in three underlying areas:
Health + Food Security + Virtual Training.

In #Ethiopia, we spoke to 3 coffee farmers who are part of the projects @HRNStiftung is implementing which are funded by @coffee_partners, @AustrianDev @iki_bmu and @lavazzagroup to learn about how they are overcoming the challenges that #COVID19 presents.


#Brazil has the second-highest number of #COVID19 cases worldwide. For @HRNStiftung do Brasil, partnerships have always been part of their holistic, long-term approach. Today we can really see the benefits.
