IDH convenes a multi-stakeholder platform across the coffee sector, bringing together a range of industry players in a precompetitive environment. This is a global partnership model that has the potential to bring sustainable coffee production to scale, and to improve the livelihoods of millions of coffee farmers worldwide.
Working alongside partners from industry and trade, from governments, NGOs and standard-setting organizations across the sector, we promote an approach that is both collaborative and bottom-up. We focus on applying local experience gained from field-level projects to the whole global sector – aiming to create a favorable environment for all key players, and to align investments in producer support programs.
This emphasis on sector alignment, innovation, and local knowledge is reflected in our broad public-private partnership agenda. We believe that collaboration at every level offers the best means of embedding socially and environmentally friendly practices into the global supply chain. This in turn offers the best means of meeting the rising global demand for coffee on a sustainable basis, and helping 4.3 million coffee producing families across the globe to become more resilient.
