Abstract

Supply chains of cattle, cocoa, rubber, coffee and amazon fruits were mapped in order to identify the actors of these supply chains and assess the existing market barriers.

Supply chains in Caquetá and are focused on the production of raw materials. Main barriers of these supply chains are related to technical assistances, quality assurance, traceability, processing technologies, entrepreneurial development and market access. Institutions have been promoting alternative products such as rubber, timber and amazon fruits involving sustainable producton practices. Commercialization is based production associations, which, taking into account the lack of infrastructure, provide services such as transport and rural extension. Buyers process the raw materials and sell products to the final consumer.

The Consortium identified opportunities to promote transformation into sustainable and low emission production systems by promoting sector strategies for each supply chains including good practices, quality assurance, agreements to reduce deforestation and strategies to access differentiated markets and promote sustainable alliances among producer’s associations and buyers. Multistakeholder’s dialogues could support the construction of sector strategies and promote partnerships between public and private sectors, including academy and research institutions.
