Coffee cultivation faces a number of crucial challenges, including increasing biotic and abiotic stresses related to climate change, concern about its environmental impact and the vulnerability of many smallholder coffee farmers.

Climate-smart production of coffee: Improving social and environmental sustainability addresses the need for more resilient and sustainable methods of cultivation which produce high-quality products at a reduced cost with minimum environmental impact. The book reviews how coffee production can be optimised throughout the value chain, from breeding to postharvest, with a particular focus on integrated management of pests and diseases.

With contributions from a wide range of internationally-renowned experts, the book shows how coffee production can be made more economically, environmentally and socially sustainable in the face of climate change.
