Coffee is a globalized commodity whose widespread popularity may be its own demise. Due to the ever increasing demand for caffeine, many producers have adopted more intensive large scale production methods. In the long run, this profitable enterprise is not environmentally sustainable compared to more traditional but less lucrative methods.

Are you willing to reduce your coffee imprint to save the planet?

Daniela Uribe's insight:
"At the Nyando Climate - Smart Villages, Western Kenya, pilot farmers are now receiving climate information on a timely basis to support their decision making. This is complemented by face to face meetings with local agriculture extension agents who discuss implications of the forecasts with the farmers."

Back to the basics: Fighting hunger with conservation agriculture in western Zambia | Climate Mitigation and Adaptation | Scoop.it

Matumbo Yembe, 44, like so many Zambians, lives off the radar. Her right leg withered and weak, Matumbo was tragically crippled as a child from polio and moves around with the help of a stick. She has scratched out a living doing whatever piecemeal work she could to get by. Because she lives alone and has little or no social connections, Matumbo, never benefited from any aid programs—that is until she was introduced to conservation agriculture.

No-win situation for agricultural expansion in the Amazon

Don Brown Jr's curator insight, May 11, 2013 3:33 PM

Agricultural expansion into the Amazon is no longer being considered a profitable investment as the resulting deforestation combined with anticipated climate change will reduce pastoral or cultivative productivity.

Climate Change Guidelines for Forest Managers-- FAO

Daniela Uribe's insight:

"The Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) has released guidelines on climate change for forest managers, which discuss the projected positive and negative impacts of climate change on policy, social, economic and biophysical forest factors.

 

The guidelines discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with climate change mitigation and adaptation in forests, the role of sustainable forest management (SFM) in climate change responses, the links between climate change policies and forest management, and vulnerability and risk assessments. They also present guiding frameworks for climate change mitigation and adaptation activities to be carried out by forest managers.

 

Overall, the guidelines conclude that climate change is expected to impact the distribution, composition, structure and functioning of forest ecosystems. As such, climate change presents challenges for forest managers, which can be addressed, in part, through SFM, efforts to address deforestation and forest degradation, and forest monitoring and reporting."
