Sustainability and Voluntary Certification in the Rwandan Coffee Sector
Voluntary Sustainability Certification (VSC) is increasingly affecting the Rwandan coffee sector, presenting both valuable opportunities and noteworthy challenges.
Through a four-year program supported by the Swedish Government (SIDA), the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) is establishing advisory services on VSC in producing countries based on their information and capacity-building needs, with the objective of supporting informed decision making among sector stakeholders.
This workshop was held February 28, 2019, co-facilitated by IISD, the National Agricultural Export Development Board (NAEB), and Sustainable Growers in Kigali, Rwanda.
