Stats Bar White

30%

If women farmers had the same access to productive inputs as male farmers, yields would increase as much as 30%

Why

Information, labor and other resources are often unequally distributed within coffee farming families. Fewer young people are choosing to work on coffee farms and women often face significant barriers to fully participating in the labour market. This negatively impacts the resilience and long-term sustainability of many coffee farms. As coffee is, and likely will remain, an important cash and export crop, challenges related to inclusiveness, encouraging youth to start working in the sector and providing social and economic empowerment for women need to be addressed.

OBJECTIVES

  • Facilitate greater gender equity and youth integration.
  • Deliver inclusive opportunities to women and young people involved in coffee production
