This is one of the essential sections of the regional knowledge hubs. It looks at what the collective action at the regional level identifies as key challenges for the sector and presents strategies to address those challenges at the national, regional and sector level (and how those actions can and should complement each other). Here the discussions are around the enabling environment needed to work at those 3 levels is identified and developed, including sharing experiences and learnings between the other regional platforms and the Global Knowledge Hub of the ICO. The information is divided into two main themes: Economic Resilience and Sustainability in the coffee sector (the overarching goal of the ICO’s CPPTF) and a second theme looking at Institution and Policy needs, recommendations and actions.

CPPTF Goals / Commitments

The Task Force is designed to build common ground for a global partnership between the coffee industry and governments, guided by the overriding vision of the sustainability of the sector and prosperity for grower communities.
