The Tchibo and Carcafe Sustainable Development for Nariño Coffee Growers Program aims to improve sustainability, adaption to climate change, cost management and quality consistency through farm investment and producer association. Farmers will be organized into associations, allowing them to sell their coffee directly to exporters and avoiding ‘intermediatos’. These assosiations will also promote the inclusion of women and youth to encourage generational sustainability. Parallel to this, waste water treatment will be available to 60% of farm households included in this project and Nariño river basins will be reforested. All farmers will receive training om soil and ecosystem protection.
