Organiser's description (via Coffee & Climate):

Sector discussions often focus on the needs of the coffee industry – such as securing the supply chains, making coffee production more sustainable, and complying with regulations. But what are the true needs of smallholder coffee farming families? Of those who produce up to 80 % of the global coffee? To what extent do the industry’s efforts actually serve to improve climate resilience and the livelihoods of farming communities?

This event brings together coffee farming communities, farmer organizations, local experts, scientists, and coffee companies, exploring the reality of coffee farming in the face of climate change.

Over the course of two days, we will discuss the impacts of climate change on coffee production, landscapes, and livelihoods. Through engaging talks, we will unveil pragmatic solutions for better climate change resilience, adaptation, and mitigation. We will share best practices and possible solutions, and highlight potential pitfalls.

The symposium includes sessions on access to finance for smallholder farmers and the role of gender inclusivity in climate action. It sheds light on motivations and hurdles to the adoption of climate-smart practices and it will illustrate how coffee landscapes can be reimagined for a sustainable future.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn, exchange, and immerse yourself in the expertise and experiences of fellow professionals and practitioners from coffee-growing regions across the globe. Join us at the Online Symposium “It’s Bean Too Hot: The Reality of Coffee Farming in the Era of Climate Change” and help shape a sustainable future for coffee farming.
