Partnerships for Forests supports investment models in which the private sector, public sector and communities can achieve improved returns from forests and sustainable land use.
Call for Expressions of Interest in Building a Brand and Supply Chain for Ethiopian Forest Coffee
Partnerships for Forests is calling for expressions of interest from potential collaborators in building a brand and supply chain for Ethiopian Forest Coffee. The call follows research in Ethiopia that suggests a strengthened value chain for wild coffee could incentivize forest conservation, bring long-term economic benefits to coffee growing communities and open up a new category of specialty coffee to the global market.
