The Coffee Alliance for Excellence (CAFE) is a public-private partnership that seeks to increase the incomes of smallholder coffee farmers so that they need not resort to drug cultivation for economic survival. CAFE will achieve this objective by helping farmers to improve productivity and break into the supply chain for specialty coffee, which pays a premium for high quality beans.

Being the second largest cocaine producing country in the world, the Government of Peru has successfully adopted a counter-narcotics strategy focused on eradication, interdiction, and alternative development with U.S. Government’s support. Coffee is the second most widely used crop substitute for coca. Through the Alliance, USAID and the private sector help lift thousands of rural families out of poverty and integrate them into the licit economy. CAFE identifies shared objectives among stakeholders, from end consumers to financial and government institutions to facilitate relationships.

A Floresta Amazônica é a maior floresta tropical remanescente no mundo. Ela absorve mais de 3% das emissões globais de dióxido de carbono e ajuda a evitar os piores efeitos das mudanças climáticas. No entanto, o desmatamento impulsionado por mudanças insustentáveis no uso da terra para a produção agrícola ameaça transformar a região em um produtor líquido de carbono. Este projeto visa a reduzir o desmatamento impulsionado pelas commodities e as emissões de gases de efeito estufa decorrentes dessa atividade em regiões de alta biodiversidade, que fornecem produtos agrícolas para empresas internacionais e nacionais.

La selva amazónica es el bosque tropical más grande que queda en el mundo. Al absorber más del 3% de las emisiones mundiales de dióxido de carbono, contribuye a evitar los efectos más graves del cambio climático. Sin embargo, la deforestación impulsada por el uso insostenible de la tierra para la agricultura amenaza con convertir a la región en una productora de carbono. Este proyecto pretende reducir la deforestación impulsada por las materias primas (commodities) y las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero que resultan de esta actividad, en las regiones de alta biodiversidad que proveen productos agrícolas a empresas internacionales y nacionales.

The Amazon rainforest is the largest remaining tropical rainforest in the world. By absorbing more than 3 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions, it helps avoid global climate change’s worst effects. However, deforestation driven by unsustainable land use change for agriculture, threatens to turn the region into a net carbon producer. The project seeks to reduce commodity-driven deforestation and associated greenhouse gas emissions from high biodiversity regions that supply agricultural products to international and domestic companies.
