Uganda – progress so far
I.
Support for Private Sector towards production and export of
sustainable coffee
• Café Africa contracted as SCP National Coordinator in Uganda
• UCF Sustainable Coffee Breakfast and Consultative meeting December 2012 & quarterly meetings
• Launch of Business Case Study (by Technoserve)
II. Promoting ownership of sustainability in the districts
• Establish Sustainability Sub-Committee of the National Coffee

district level,
• Introduce sustainability as theme into District
Coffee Shows

Uganda – challenges & opportunities
• Understanding of and involvement in sustainability amongst
all stakeholders is limited. The Business Case Study provides
an opportunity to mobilise stakeholders.
• Introduce components on climate change and finance into the
programme.
• Some of the standards are considering revision of Codes of
Conduct, this provides opportunities for more emphasis on
GAPS and PHH for true sustainability
• Through the National Steering Committee and Districts, there
is an opportunity to place Sustainability more firmly on the
«agenda» in Uganda’s coffee sector.

Key message
•
•
•
•
Productivity is a prerequisite for
Sustainability
Need to empower women and
youth as it is evident training them
leads to increased productivity
Research has a big role in providing
new and improved varieties ,
providing technologies to improve
production and processing,
mitigate climate change as well as
leverage resources
There is an increased commitment
from roasters towards
sustainability of the chain with
large financial investments for
instance with the Nescafe Plan and
Coffee Made Happy and working
towards 100% sustainable supply
chains.

Africa still holds a very small share of
the compliant market with even a
smaller share of that sold as such.
The region needs to be more
involved in the revision of the
standards
Involve farmers in decision making
Farmers to think of sustainability
from a business view
Sustainability requires better
collaboration between all
stakeholders
We need to make use of what we
have and improve access to it
Develop what is missing
Cooperate to a larger extent In the
sector
Next forum in Bujumbura
