Bern, NCCR North-South 2011

As part of a transversal research project exploring coffee value chains in Tanzania, Ethiopia and Kenya, this study traced Fair Trade and open market coffee value chains in Kiliman-jaro Region, Tanzania and in Jimma Region, Ethiopia. It compares the governance frameworks and benefit distribution among actors in both chains and makes recommendations for policy changes in order to maximise returns for smallholder farmers.
