Climate change is an important issue in international agricultural sectors; its effects are being felt by producers on a day to day basis, but also by players further up in the commodity value chain who see the continuity of their supply threatened.

Many small scale producers and their organizations are already implementing innovative approaches to adapt to climate change. Also, the production systems of commodities like coffee, cocoa, cotton and tea offer many opportunities for contributing to climate mitigation and GHG-emissions reductions.

In the ProClimate Challenge, the best practices regarding climate adaptation and mitigation in these sectors will be collected, rewarded and shared to inspire others. In addition to winning a prize, ProClimate and its strategic partners will work on the promotion of the winning best practices to relevant stakeholders at national and international level, giving you the chance to present your efforts in contributing to a better environment to a wider audience.

wow! the proposals really are so good,i have read several and i realize people are putting great effort to try deal with the climate challenges we face as farmers and if these proposals would be put in place,i am certain low production due to the climate change effects would be a thing of the past. Wish you all, the best in the  challenge

The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) submits its framework for effective climate change mitigation in coffee production systems. The framework is developed in close cooperation with cooperatives in El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Mexico.
