The Nicaraguan Platform for Sustainable Development (NICAFES) officially launched Nov. 30 to galvanize dozens of NGOs, government interests and private parties to explore pathways to support the sustainable development of the Nicaraguan coffee sector.

Supported by the National Alliance of Nicaraguan Coffee Growers (ANCN), the Belgian development organization Rikolto and certifying agency UTZ, the platform has been initially joined by some 35 organizations related to the sector, including growers, cooperatives, exporters, academic institutions, service providers and input suppliers.

“The main challenge of NICAFES is to unify efforts from public and private coffee sector,” Juan Francisco Martínez of UTZ Nicaragua said in an announcement of the platform launch. “This will only be possible through a dialogue amongst relevant actors.”
