UpLao Coffee Project (UCP)

Problem area

Created at: 15 Aug 2015

Description

The UpLao Coffee Project (UCP) is a project that will transform Luang Namtha Province to a high quality coffee producing area. UCP will start in Ban Namvang, a village of mainly Hmong ethnic people, where 10 farmers will be trained in producing high quality coffee. They are willing to invest their time, labour and will use 1 hectare of their land each for the project. Besides coffee, UCP will integrate other valuable crops, such as fruit and nut trees that will function as the necessary shade trees on the plantation. This diversification will make farmers less vulnerable to possible price fluctuations and further contribute to secure sustainable livelihoods.
