The recording of the panel discussion will be streamed on Wednesday, December 7 at 3.30 pm (CET).
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world. It has created new challenges for smallholder coffee farming families and exacerbated their already difficult situations. Many of them experienced food insecurity, couldn’t sell their products or did not have access to inputs like seedlings or fertilizers.
The pandemic, however, also showed what has helped smallholders during the lockdown. The approach of International Coffee Partners (ICP) equipped them with agronomical techniques and training in different social aspects, following our holistic approach with particular importance on women and youth. Through this, farming communities were able to better deal with several challenges.
Our experiences in the pandemic even showed that our approach has also the potential to prepare farming communities for future crises.
The panelists will give you firsthand insight into the situation in Uganda and Guatemala during the pandemic and presents to you the instruments of the ICP approach.
