The event will address key challenges in coffee research, growth and production. Coffee is not only a world commodity but also a resource for many developing countries. The general decrease in commodity prices, including coffee, as well as the consequences of climate change put at serious risk numerous communities worldwide who depend on coffee production for their livelihoods. The event will look into these challenges and will also provide opportunities to build links and collaborations between researchers and coffee experts, both in developing and developed countries.
TWAS is seeking candidates - young scientists from developing countries engaged in coffee research - to participate in this event. Travel support, as well as board and lodging for selected candidates will be covered by the organizers.
