Since the public launching of the Brazilian Coffee Sustainability Curriculum (CSC) in March 2015, numerous trainings have taken place. Through the Train the Trainers project, participants of these sessions have included technicians of 34 different partners such as state extension services, coops, associations and traders in the main coffee regions. On July 2016 the Global Coffee Platform reached up to 640 technicians trained on the CSC, which constitutes an estimate of 1,000 technicians trained by the end of 2016.
Through these sessions, participants have been able to demystify the implementation of the best practices leading to sustainability.
The training program aims at amplifying the technical assistance services not only focused on the agronomic / productive side but also incorporating a systemic approach to coffee farming, including the economic, environmental and social criteria of the CSC.
The 18 Fundamental Items of the CSC, validated by the coffee chain, are prioritized in the training to accelerate the continuous improvement of coffee growers.
