Through this partnership with Pact, the world’s two largest coffee buyers, Nestlé and JDE Peet’s, are co-financing along with USAID a carbon footprint assessment of Robusta coffee cultivation in two key sourcing areas of Vietnam and Indonesia. These areas cover more than 1 million hectares that produce a quarter of global coffee supply. The resulting greenhouse gas emissions benchmark – needed to measure the companies’ progress on net-zero climate commitments – will be the first standardized method to assess emissions by and for the coffee sector in Southeast Asia.
USAID Green Invest Asia operates across Southeast Asia, with an initial focus on Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia and the Philippines. The project is catalyzing private sector finance to upscale and drive investments in agriculture, forestry, and other land use toward low emissions, yet profitable business models. USAID Green Invest Asia identifies and develops promising climate-smart business deals with solid profit potential for investors. The project engages with financial institutions and investors to link them to pipeline opportunities and bridge financial and technical gaps necessary to overcome barriers to investment in businesses that are environmentally and socially responsible. It provides direct technical services to enterprises desiring to "green" their supply chains and assists in structuring corresponding financial deals to reduce investor risk. USAID Green Invest Asia is implemented by Pact, with partners MSP and Control Union. Learn more here.

Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC), a five-year global project funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is dedicated to achieving and maintaining HIV epidemic control. The project provides strategic technical assistance and direct service delivery to break through barriers to 95-95-95 and promote self-reliant management of national HIV programs by improving HIV case-finding, prevention and treatment programming. EpiC is led by FHI 360, with Pact providing capacity building support to local partners.
