Our Research Areas

CRECE helps to create a more competitive, efficient, sustainable, profitable and resilient coffee economy. We do this by generating knowledge to guide the decisions of national and regional development actors. CRECE works through four specific Research Areas: Regional Development, Coffee Economy, Social and Institutional Development and Education. Through specialisation and collaboration between the four areas, CRECE is able to make a difference in the reduction of rural poverty and the adequate integration with the development of the Colombian coffee regions.
