Description

Coffee cultivation faces a number of crucial challenges, including increasing biotic and abiotic stresses related to climate change, environmental degradation in high-input systems, global oversupply and low prices. The coffee sector needs more resilient and sustainable methods of cultivation to produce a higher quality product at manageable cost and minimum environmental impact.

Climate-smart production of coffee: Achieving sustainability and ecosystem services provides a comprehensive and authoritative review of how resilience and sustainability can be achieved using a distinctive agroecological approach, based on improving cultivation through optimising ecosystem services. It shows how these principles can be applied throughout the value chain in coffee cultivation, from breeding to post-harvest practices.

Edited by Professor Reinhold Muschler, CATIE, Costa Rica and contributions by internationally renowned experts, Climate-smart production of coffee: Achieving sustainability and ecosystem services will be a standard reference on best practice in sustainable coffee production for use by researchers; coffee growers, particularly smallholders, coffee manufacturers and retailers; government and non-governmental agencies.
