Coffee Production a Golden Opportunity for Rural Youth Employment

Coffee Production a Golden Opportunity for Rural Youth Employment

Issue No 36: This policy brief draws from the research paper by Mbowa et al. (2014) focusing on the prospects and challenges of the coffee sector in the mid-North of Uganda. There is growing evidence in the sub-region that the systematic coffee planting by the Uganda Coffee Development Authority has yielded positive results in the sub-region. Despite the faster adoption of coffee in the sub-region, there are challenges that need to be addressed. These relate to lack of organized marketing and processing infrastructure to support value addition; and inadequate coffee specialized extension support system to narrow the knowledge gap about recommended agronomic practices among farmers.
