The Global Coffee Sustainability Conference 2017 provided the ideal environment to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Global Coffee Platform (GCP) and the Sustainable Coffee Platform of Indonesia (SCOPI).
The renewed cooperation builds on their existing collaboration and aims to further enable the public and private sectors in the Indonesian coffee sector to work together to improve the economic opportunities for coffee farmers, improve food security for coffee communities, and increase environmental sustainability.
“The existence and success of SCOPI demonstrates the readiness of local actors to come together to pool their strengths and their resources in order to tackle the sustainability challenges on the ground – this continued partnership will build on this and connect the Indonesian and global coffee worlds to positively shape the future of the Indonesian coffee sector” Annette Pensel, Executive Director of the Global Coffee Platform.
As presented at the Global Coffee Sustainability Conference, there are a wide range of opportunities for GCP Members to become actively involved in contributing to the sustainability of Indonesia’s coffee sector. These include the roll out of National Sustainability Curricula for both Arabica and Robusta, scaling activities supporting access to finance, and strengthening market access for Indonesian coffee farmers.
