Climate-smart Agriculture in Coffee

Fri, 10/13/2017 - 17:42

Solidaridad is using climate-smart agriculture (CSA) to reduce deforestation in high-altitude regions and improve yields from existing plots by helping coffee farmers increase their resilience against climate change. Three areas of Central and South America were chosen for the trial programme where protecting the forests is a critical issue: Chiapas in Mexico, Risaralda in Colombia and San Martin in Peru. Improved results for yield increase and deforestation reduction show that farmers can be part of the solution to climate change rather than part of the problem.
