PROJECT #2

DEFORESTATION FREE​ COFFEE

In the wake of massive deforestation in the Amazon basin, the government of Ecuador is using funds allocated by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to strengthen initiatives to produce sustainable supply chains. In late 2019, a Letter of Intent was signed in Quito between MAAE, MAG, UNDP, and Lavazza Group, aimed at strengthening the coffee sector in Ecuador by piloting the “deforestation-free” initiative.​
