Climate Smart Agriculture

Defining and prioritizing issues

Climate change is putting coffee production and the livelihoods of coffee farmers and their families around the world at risk. Changes in temperature and rainfall, as well as extreme weather events directly impact coffee quality and productivity levels.


The Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Collective Action Network seeks to:

  • Define and prioritize most pressing issues and actions to be taken
  • Scale CSA learnings to support farmers in adapting more rapidly and widely 

The Collective Action Network will:

  • facilitate dialogue between the different actors in the coffee sector
  • align resources
  • drive efficient action to improve climate smart farming 

What is Climate Smart Agriculture?

Climate smart agriculture is an approach that helps to guide actions needed to transform and reorient agricultural systems to effectively support development and ensure food security in a changing climate. Climate smart agriculture aims to tackle three main objectives:

  1. Sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and incomes
  2. Adapting and building resilience to climate change
  3. Reducing and/or removing greenhouse gas emissions, where possible
