The genesis of the Coffee Roadmap

In October 2015, His Excellency the President of the Republic of Uganda issued a directive to accelerate coffee production from the current 3.5 million 60 kg bags to 20 million bags by 2020. To actualise this directive, in December 2015, UCDA in collaboration with the Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit convened a stakeholders’ meeting in which an agenda for a Coffee Lab was agreed upon. The stakeholders agreed on potential strategies for government action in FY 2016/2017 pending design of a Coffee 2020 Roadmap (effectively, the results of the aforementioned Coffee Lab).
