Setting in Motion Sustainable Development in the African Coffee Sector

Bujumbura, 17 February 2014 – The 4 th annual African Coffee Sustainability Forum took place in Bujumbura, Burundi, on 12 February 2014. Under the theme “Sustainable Coffee Farming as a Business for African Coffee Farmers: Learnings, challenges & joint efforts for solutions”, the Forum brought together 150 stakeholders to address the key factors influencing the adoption of sustainability practices by African coffee farmers. In his opening speech, Burundi's Assistant to the Minister of Agriculture and Livestock, Mr. Boniface Mwikomo remarked: “ The ‘Business Case for Sustainability ’ no longer needs to be proved , provided that the activities that lead to sustainability are helping the coffee farmers to improve their productivity and the quality of their coffee. This in turn should result in safer and more stable revenues for them ”.
