Interagency technical mission to Nicaragua
24 June 2013
The ICO Head of Operations, Mauricio Galindo, together with senior representatives of the FAO, IFAD and EMBRAPA, participated in an interagency technical mission to Nicaragua from 24 to 27 June 2013. The aim of the mission was to analyse coffee production in Nicaragua, taking into account trends in the world coffee market and the potential impact
of climate change. The strengths and weaknesses of the sector were reviewed and the conclusions will contribute to the development of a National Programme for Transformation and Development of Coffee Production for the country. The mission concluded with a Coffee Forum attended by more than 300 people, including three ministers of state, producers, exporters, representatives of cooperatives and international development agencies, during which Mauricio Galindo presented the current coffee market situation.

1 October is #InternationalCoffeeDay.
This year we have chosen a very special theme for this year’s celebrations: ‘Women in Coffee’. Women play as important a role in the whole of the coffee chain as men, from planting the seeds to processing to trading to brewing… and drinking it. To find out more visit the dedicated International Coffee Day website.
