FEED THE FUTURE AFRICA GREAT LAKES COFFEE SUPPORT PROGRAM

Michigan State University in partnership with IPAR-Rwanda are undertaking the Feed for the Future Africa Great Lakes Coffee Support program, a three year funded USAID project that aims to implement an integrative program of collaborative research, policy engagement and producer capacity building in the Great lakes Region of Africa to control potato taste defect (PTD) and improve coffee productivity.


IPAR-Rwanda will implement project activities focused on coffee farmers, notably their cost of production and the determinants of farmer incentives to invest in their coffee plantations. IPAR-Rwanda will also collect and analyze data on the coffee washing stations where the sampled producers process their cherry.
