The roundtables each include a different set of selectively invited individuals, usually about 10 - 12, from government, private industry, cooperatives and relevant research groups. All are being held at the Institute of Policy Analysis and Research (IPAR) in Kigali, one of the Rwandan partners on the project.
The format of the roundtables is to first present to the participants the "fresh off the press" analysis and findings from the baseline survey of 1024 coffee producers' households conducted Jan - Mar 2016. Then, after a coffee/tea break, the participants are invited to ask questions and discuss the findings with Global Knowledge Initiative (GKI) guiding the conversation and recording comments with flipcharts and typed notes.
