You can read more about the project here*, but the things that appealed to us are:
- the project has been initiated by people from Papua New Guinea (rather than foreigners);
- they see this project as being important in peace-building in an area that has seen a lot of conflict in recent times;
- their process has been guided by a World Bank report into the coffee industry in PNG, so they won't be making the same mistakes as have been made by others in the past (although of course they can make new mistakes and they still see this as a high risk endeavour).
* there's more information in the links in the orange 'recent articles' section at the right-hand side of the page. We also have a pdf about the project that contains some information that doesn't seem to be on the website. If you'd like me to email you a copy just put a request in the comments or email us here.
