Productive Partnerships in Agriculture Project

The objective of this project is to improve the livelihoods of smallholder cocoa and coffee producers by enhancing the performance and sustainability of value chains in cocoa- and coffee-growing areas. These value chains are an important part of farming systems in the project area and play a critical role in helping households meet their cash requirements.

To enhance rural livelihoods, the project works to:

  • Strengthen coordination between the coffee and cocoa industries and related institutions
  • Facilitate linkages between smallholder farmers and agribusiness for the provision of technologies and services
  • Provide improvements in infrastructure to increase smallholders' access to markets.

The project provides smallholder farmers, producers, women and young people with training in more efficient, market-responsive and sustainable production practices. It covers two distinct target areas: for cocoa, the coastal areas of East New Britain and the Autonomous Region of Bougainville; and for coffee, the provinces of Eastern Highlands, Jiwaka and Simbu.
