"Adaptation for Smallholders to Climate Change" (AdapCC) supports coffee and tea farmers in developing strategies to cope with the risks and impacts of climate change.

The pilot initiative was implemented between April 2007 and February 2010 as a Public-Private Partnership by the leading British Fairtrade company for hot beverages out Cafédirect and the out Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH (German Technical Cooperation). Financing of the project was shared by Cafédirect (52%) and the PPP programme (48%) of the out Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The successful pilot project will be extended and continued by Cafédirect and several regional and international public and private institutions (see also "Results / Upscaling Results").

Final Report
After three years of working with farmers and help them to find ways to confront changing climate and production conditions and manage uncertainties the AdapCC pilot initiative is now able to present its results and lessons learnt, which we would like to make available for you in our Final Report.

PDF-Document (2.4 MB)

The report informs you about how we implemented the AdapCC project and how we developed site-specific adaptation strategies. You will find a detailed description of each of the four pilot cases from the Latin American coffee sector and the East African tea sector as well as recommendations how to scale up the approach and which results and instruments should help to confront climate change in the future.

Training Handbook
Among the most interesting results AdapCC designed and implemented a capacity building programme for smallscale coffee production. The related training handbook is now available in Spanish.
