Before we started the AdapCC pilot initiative in 2007 many coffee and tea farmers in East Africa as well as in Latin America
told us, that they were suffering from changing climate conditions, unpredictable rainfalls, long-lasting drought periods or
extreme weather events like hurricanes and heavy rains which devastated farmers' plantations, often lying at steep slopes of
the hillside, and thus their yields and family income.
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 at this website as well as in our final reports and training handbooks.
- Database concerning impacts and future risks for the production of tea and coffee as well
as the carbon sequestration potential
- ROA Process as the participatory basic tool to identify adaptation measures
- Exemplary adaptation strategies implemented in 4 focal regions
- Capacity building program and handbook to train technical mobilisers of Latin American
- Network of public and private institutions on a regional and international level
- Integration of results in Central American regional policies – political
