In collaboration with our affiliated producer networks, national offices and industry allies, we will support the transition of at least 250,000 ha of small-scale, coffee farmer plots, from their “current status” to “increasingly functional agroforestry systems” by 2030 in at least 10 coffee-producing countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Building knowledge and practical pathways, we’ll meet farmers where they are and support their sustainability transitions from: conventional methods to more environmentally friendly practices; from passive-organic plots to increasingly functional agroforestry systems; and from regenerative, agroforestry plots to balanced and highly productive ecosystems that simultaneously serve as efficient and stable carbon sinks.
Expected outcomes include:
- Measurably improved productivity, while enhancing the ecological functionality and potential carbon capture;
- Empowered and motivated farmers, who see positive impact in the short term; and, finally,
- Improved incomes due to better productivity, lower costs of production and potential carbon in-setting or off-setting premiums and/or credits.
In partnership with: We will be working in collaboration with Fairtrade producer networks and country-specific marketing offices, coffee industry commercial allies, and technical support from organizations such as: International Biochar Initiative, CIFOR-ICRAF, Global Soil Partnership, Terraformation, Cool Farm Alliance and others.
