Climate change still poses a substantial threat to global agriculture and the coffee sector is particularly vulnerable to this. Realizing the importance of our role and our responsibility attached to it the initiative for coffee & climate is now officially launching its second phase. During the first phase many adaptation options have raised farmers’ resilience to climate change and contributed to increase and stabilize income. Building on the successful experiences of the first phase, the activities will be put at scale. The second phase will advance these important achievements. The approach is further expanded to also effectively address mitigation of carbon emissions in coffee production. The initiative for coffee & climate is welcoming new parties to join. The more support and participation this initiative experiences, the stronger we can dedicate its expertise and know-how to combatting the consequences of climate change for the millions of coffee farmers worldwide.
