When we started the AdapCC project, we first had to determine and systematise how climate is affecting tea and coffee
production and how we could use this information to identify adequate adaptation measures and plan adaptation
strategies for the producer organisations. Hence AdapCC carried out national research studies in six pilot countries
Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
For more detailed information on the results from the investigation phase please have a look at the AdapCC Synthesis
Report from January 2008.

Within the AdapCC project the scientific institute CIAT (International Centre for Tropical Agriculture) were contracted
to forecast the future suitability of current coffee growing areas in Nicaragua and other pilot regions in Mexico and Peru.
For all regions a move of areas suitable for coffee production to higher altitudes and an overall loss of the current areas
as well as a loss of quality is predicted. Nicaraguan coffee production is predicted to be among the most hit.
For more detailed information on regional forecasts please download the final presentation of the results and suitability
maps for Piura / Peru (PDF-Document, 7.8 MB)
as well as for Chiapas and Veracruz in Mexico and for Nicaragua (PDF-Document, 8.6 MB).
