COVID-19: Rwanda's preparedness and response

III World Coffee Producers Forum

The 3rd meeting of the World Coffee Producers Forum in Rwanda, follows the previous ones in Medellín, Colombia in 2017, and in Campinas, Brazil in 2019. With an impressive group of experts, the focus of the 3rd Forum will be to secure the future of a coffee sector where coffee producers are prosperous, and coffee production is sustainable with the creation of National Coffee Sustainability Plans, which will help producing countries design and implement comprehensive coffee policies.

The World Coffee Producers Forum typically gathers wide media coverage and international attention, as well as visits of hundreds of participants from around the world. For example, the first Forum held in Medellín, Colombia in 2017, brought together over 1,400 producers, industry representatives, government officials, multilateral agencies, and nonprofits hailing from more than 40 coffee-producing countries. The second Forum held in Campinas, Brazil in 2019, gathered over 1,500 equally diverse and wide-reaching attendees.
