Connecting to Coconut

CKC supports and connects individuals and organisations seeking to develop sustainable coconut operations within upstream production. Supporting socially conscious projects that contribute to delivering fair-rate returns for coconut grower livelihoods alongside tangible societal and environmental outcomes.

Coconut is one of the most important perennial crops in the humid tropics of Asia. In Indonesia, India and Philippines coconut covers nearly 8 million hectares and engages millions of base of pyramid peoples.

The adaptability of coconuts to a wide range of geophysical factors and its versatility in terms of utility value makes it a commonly grown smallholder crop in tropical farming systems. It is a particularly successful crop, well adapted to existing agro-climatic and geo-physical conditions, relatively simple technology involved in its production and not as input-intensive as annuals.
