74. IWCA Invited to Present at Cote D'Ivoire ICO Statistics Meeting

Sep. 25, 2017
In his opening speech at the 2017 IWCA Convention, Jose Sette, the new Executive Director of the International Coffee Organization (ICO) communicated that ICO members should not only improve their capacity to provide employment data on men and women, but also recognize the strong contributions of women.

The ICO is considering new rules for the member countries' submissions of data. Currently, countries submit data focused solely on production: kilograms, bags and beans. On September 25, IWCA was invited to present at a special meeting of the ICO Statistics Committee in Cote d'Ivoire.  The narration of IWCA's presentation to ICO members is available on the IWCA You Tube Channel, or click on the link below.
