This will be the third in-person iteration of the event, which is focused on critical issues affecting coffee producers, such as sustainability, climate change, environment and prosperity.
« The dialogue continues evolving towards the need of a more comprehensive approach beyond the issue of prices, » the WCPF, which was established as a nonprofit entity in 2018, said in a preview of the Rwanda event. « It is necessary for the whole value chain to work together to create the necessary conditions or structure for farmers’ prosperity, because currently, these conditions are not enough for producers to achieve a living income. »
The Rwanda event will follow the inaugural in-person WCPF in Medellín, Colombia, in 2017, which featured former United States President Bill Clinton and renowned economist Jeffrey Sachs. The second, equally high-profile WCPF took place in Campinas, Brazil, in 2019.
