Coffee and Agroforestry Livelihood Improvement Project: Grant Assistance Report

Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction | May 2020

The project will underpin implementation of Timor-Leste’s new Coffee Sector Development Plan and pilot a new model for delivering training to 2,000 coffee farming households in the Aileu, Ainaro, Bobonaro, Ermera, Liquica, and Manufahi municipalities. These households will receive training on good agricultural practices for production of coffee and related crops and assistance with access to finance. The project will also strengthen industry management and support initiatives to improve coffee quality and linkages with key markets. The project will support Timor-Leste’s post COVID-19 economic recovery by helping to improve rural livelihoods. The project is aligned with the ADB Strategy 2030 operational priorities of addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities, and promoting rural development and food security.

Grant assistance reports provide background information on the project including the rationale for grant funding rather than lending.
