The goal of the initiative is to restore and manage water resources while increasing farmer income in the coffeelands of El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The program contributes to this goal in three ways:
Improving sustainable coffee agroforestry production in critical watersheds promoting water-smart agriculture
Strengthening local water governance
Improving farmer access to high-value markets
Blue Harvest includes three programmatic areas:
Funds for water resource management work in the field
Learning and advocacy
Keurig Green Mountain and Catholic Relief Services
Direct and indirect beneficiaries
Blue Harvest works with 2,500 small farmers and 1,000 local actors, which makes 3,500 direct beneficiaries.
