"Investing in Youth in Coffee Growing Communities" is the name of the report by @HRNStiftung, @FoodLab_SFL, and SAFE that highlights the successes and challenges experienced by the private sector, NGOs, and producer groups when collaborating with youth.

#coffee economics are not #sustainable. Producers earning less than the cost of production despite booming demand. What is the solution?

The initiative for coffee&climate is looking back to a great 2018 and forward to a fantastic 2019 🎉 together with the founding members @PauligFi @Lofbergs @Lavazza @Tchibo_presse @giz_gmbh Joh. Johannson, Neumann Gruppe #thefutureofcoffee #climatechange
