Coffee Farming and Climate Change in Ethiopia: Impacts, Forecasts, Resilience and Opportunities
This document is the outcome of a two-year project by the Strategic Climate Institutions Programme (SCIP). The project aimed to established strategies for a climate-resilient coffee economy in Ethiopia in which the effects of various climate change factors on coffee production and wild coffee forests were acccessed.
Conclusions & Takeaways
The strategy highlights six major messages. The first thing are in regard to the future of climate change on coffee farming, specifically that coffee landscapes are complex yet the climate in Africa will continue to rise and will continue to negatively impact coffee growing in Ethiopia. The final two message focus on potential solutions, including relocation of coffee farms and other adaption strategies.
