NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT

HAMRO COFFEE- Expanding Opportunities for Nepalese Coffee Farmers and Traders’ project is an EU funded project to support the development of coffee sector in Nepal implemented in partnership with ICCO Cooperation and NCPA. HAMRO COFFEE aims to bridge the gap between the potential rewards and current productivity of the sub-sector by creating an enabling environment for the key stakeholders across the coffee-value chain to form a sustainable, well-managed and integrated coffee production. The overall objective (impact) of HAMRO COFFEE is: “Increased income of small holders through an enhanced market driven specialty coffee sector”.

Project will work in six districts with coffee producers to enhance the quality and quantity of coffee cherries produced through improved farming techniques and affordable access to quality inputs and services, thereby providing the means for a sustainable income for 4000 smallholder farmers directly. Project will also help to conduct market study and promotion, including tourism activities in growing areas.  The project will be implemented by a consortium of partners, with the ICCO Cooperation having overall responsibility for coordination.
