Abstract: Coffee is a volatile commodity. Many producers have suffered of severe price fluctuations. On the side of consumers the market has seen a rise of ethical consumership over the past few years, where there is a wish to consume sustainable and fair products. The Fair Trade certification is one of these certifications and aims to create an equitable market, where producers receive a price that generates a sustainable livelihood. This research looks at the impact the Fair Trade certification has had on rural development in the region of Cusco, Peru, one of Peru's coffee producing areas.
