    The tropical fruit sector is very important in many developing countries, as it provides incomes and jobs for hundreds of thousands of farmers and other workers, contributing to the enhancement of livelihoods and food security in these countries. In addition, tropical fruit exports generate substantial earnings for several developing countries, and their unit value is the highest among fruits and vegetables. Tropical fruits are also part of a healthy diet for millions of people. Despite its importance, the sector faces significant sustainability issues (environmental, economic and social), which have been compounded by the impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID 19) pandemic. This project was formulated to mitigate these issues by fostering the development of more sustainable and responsible tropical fruit value chains though multistakeholder engagement. The project will initially prioritize work with the private sector (companies, trade associations and producer organizations) due to its central role in these value chains. This includes facilitating collaboration between relevant actors and capacity development activities to strengthen producer organizations and other private sector actors so that they may participate actively in the development of these value chains.

    The tropical fruit sector is very important in many developing countries, as it provides incomes and jobs for hundreds of thousands of farmers and other workers, contributing to the enhancement of livelihoods and food security. Despite its importance, the sector faces significant challenges with respect to sustainability and resilience, which have been exacerbated by the COVID 19 pandemic. The pandemic’s impacts have been stronger and more profound than on most other agricultural industries due to the perishability of tropical fruits, their comparatively higher prices and their heavy reliance on labour . This project was formulated to mitigate these issues by fostering the development of more sustainable, resilient and responsible tropical fruit value chains though multi stakeholder engagement that targets the private sector.
