Across the world, coffee farmers face a diverse range of threats to their livelihoods, their communities, and their natural environments. Whether labor conditions, water efficiency, or responsible agro-chemical use, each coffee producing country is confronted with their own unique set of challenges and with differing priorities.
GCP Collective Action Initiatives address selected priority issues and coordinate local and international stakeholders, the resources, and the expertise needed to collectively address and act on them.
As these systemic sustainability issues are too big to be dealt with by a single organization, GCP Collective Action Initiatives go beyond a traditional supply chain approach by involving country sustainability platforms, governments, the private sector, research, and NGOs. Results are shared among the local and global coffee community for scaling and replication at the coffee field level and adoption into government and company policies, GCP Collective Action Initiatives are ensuring an environment conducive to long-term sustainability.
