Coffee Toolkit 2014: sustainable coffee as a family business
This Coffee Toolkit (PDF) was developed for the coffee industry, in response to the demand for knowledge on how to best integrate women and youth in the coffee value chain and provides practical approaches and tools for stakeholders and service providers. The toolkit is a joint effort of the SCP, Agri-ProFocus, Fair & Sustainable Advisory Services, IDH and Hivos. The toolkit is based on the Gender in Value Chains Toolkit developed by Agri-ProFocus and tools included were selected from existing gender focused manuals, including those produced by USAID, Enclude, GALS, ILO, Care, and experiences from Hivos gender programmes in the coffee sector. The toolkit focuses on interventions at the individual and household level, small entrepreneurship, producer organizations, large businesses, standards and certification, service providers and networks. The interventions recommended in this toolkit aim to trigger increased production, improved quality and ensure a steady supply of sustainable coffee now and in the future.
