Uganda is set to remain a member of the Association of Coffee Producing Countries and the Inter-Africa Coffee Organisation , although it will have problems finding the membership fees. The country is the second largest coffee producer in Africa, and coffee is Uganda's single largest earner of foreign exchange. Bad weather, crop disease and world prices plummeting 40% have taken a harsh toll however. Over the last six months Uganda earned just US$54.3m from coffee exports, 50% less compared to that exported during the preceding six months despite the fact that the amount exported had fallen by only 12%.
