The Executive Director presents his compliments and, in view of the dramatic situation arising from the outbreak of the covid-19 declared as a pandemic on 11 March 2020, requests ICO Members and members of the Private Sector Consultative Board (PSCB) to fill out an online survey focusing on the impacts in exporting and importing countries as well as the mitigating strategies and recovery plans being implemented.

The objective of the survey is to assist ICO Members and the global coffee community by assessing the short- and long-term impact on the coffee sector and to identify mitigation measures available and needed resources. This online survey will update the assessment of impacts of the pandemic and strategies adopted by countries carried out in 2020.

The survey should be completed by 30 September 2021 at the latest. The answers to the survey below will complement the assessment being carried out by the ICO, its partners and stakeholders and will help outline current perception and trends and serve as an instrument to advocate for and access resources and funding to help mitigate the negative impact of covid-19 on the health, social and economic life of all those working in the coffee sector and their families.

All the information provided by the respondents will be treated to ensure confidentiality and the results will be presented exclusively in an aggregated form.
If you face technical hurdles with this online tool, please print and fill the questionnaire and send it by email to the Chief Economist, Denis Seudieu (
