The agreement between SCOPI and the MoU Bank of Indonesia seeks to engage national financial institutions to support trainings covering topics from Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) to Link to Market. The GAP training already started on June and will continue with Post Harvest on September, monitoring progress every 6 months. Initially, the training is directed to 30 farmers in 1 village and will pick 4 candidates for Farmers Leaders, who will replicate the lessons learned to other communities.
In addition to the development of the National Sustainable Curriculum (NSC) for Robusta and Arabica, and the creation of the Master Trainer Program, SCOPI developed several collaboration programs for training coffee farmers in various regions. Those partnerships are reflected in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) signed with 20 institutions in 2017, ranging from local government authorities to NGOs, associations, universities and private sector companies. Such agreements seek to accelerate SCOPI goals: improving the economy of farmers, increase productivity and quality as well the farmer’s knowledge on sustainable practices.
