The second phase of the project funded by USAID for coffee producer capacity-building and policy engagement initiative in the Great Lakes Region of Africa kicked off with a midline survey conducted in four districts namely; Rutsiro, Huye, Gakenke and Kirehe.
The Researchers interviewed the same 512 households interviewed during baseline survey and the data collected are being analyzed.
.The results from this survey will enable stakeholders in Rwanda’s coffee sector to better plan and support farmers in the production of coffee. The results will serve as the basis for smallholder capacity building and policy engagement aimed at reducing potato taste defect and low coffee productivity and profitability in the Africa Great Lakes Region.
