April 17, 2017 — The Sustainable Coffee Challenge, a coalition of over 65 partners including corporations, governments, NGOs and research organizations, today announced the first four Collective Action Networks to further its effort to make coffee the first sustainable agricultural product in the world.

The future of coffee depends on the ability of the sector to find effective solutions that address the greatest challenges facing coffee.  Sustaining coffee in light of climate variability, aging farmers, aging trees and volatile markets will require new collaborations that effectively replicate and scale up successful programs efficiently.

“A key tenet of the Sustainable Coffee Challenge is to encourage partners to tackle some of the most pressing challenges facing the coffee sector by working collaboratively.
