Press/Media: Expert Comment


In Ethiopia making coffee, the national drink, is primarily women’s work, one imbued with cultural significance. Making sure that women benefit equally from the activities of the Darwin Initiative funded Wild Coffee Conservation (WCC) project in Ethiopia has been an important concern from the start. The project is testing a new approach by using Devolved or Participatory Forest Management (PFM) in the conservation of wild Coffea arabica in the Afromontane forests of south west Ethiopia.
