International Coffee Partners (ICP) in Indonesia
Active since 2014
Current project phase until 2023
Home to a rich, diverse eco-system, Indonesia grows some of the worlds exceptional coffees. Indonesia is among the world’s largest coffee producing and exporting countries. Like in our other project regions, smallholder coffee farmer families in Indonesia face challenges like poor access to expertise and support services, effects of climate change, and lack of agricultural knowledge.
The current project is located in the region of OKU Selatan District in Southern Sumatra. ICP focuses in Indonesia on:
– improving the profitability for smallholder coffee farmers,
– the provision of professional capacitiy building combined with the establishment of farmer organizations,
