Barriers to sustainability

The Robusta coffee sector in the Central Highlands is predominantly unsustainable. Monocropping is the main system being used in the Central Highlands, highly affecting the diversity of the area. Other agricultural practices further hinder the sustainability of the area. For this project, the 5 main barriers to sustainability focused upon are;

  • Coffee quality,
  • Pests and diseases
  • Irrigation
  • Fertilisers
  • Weather/post-harvest.

The aim of this project is to gain an understanding on the priority of these issues and to uncover potential solutions to such problems in the sector.
