Ecosystem-based Adaptation for Smallholder Subsistence and Coffee Farming Communities in Central America (CASCADE)

Fri, 10/20/2017 - 17:33

Conservation International (CI) and the Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE) are working together to identify and test Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) strategies that can help smallholder farming communities adapt to climate change in Central America. The joint research project, CASCADE (Central American Subsistence and Coffee farmer ADaptation based on Ecosystems), is generously funded by the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety under the framework of the International Climate Initiative (ICI) and will run until 2017. In addition to CI and CATIE, other key partners in the project include CIRAD and Bioversity. The overall goal of the CASCADE project is to help vulnerable smallholder farming systems adapt to climate change by identifying and testing Ecosystem-based Adaptation strategies that can help farmers, and building local capacity to support the implementation of these strategies in smallholder farming communities. The project will be developed in three countries, Costa Rica, Honduras and Guatemala, and will focus on subsistence farmers and smallholder coffee farmers.
