Adapting to Markets and Climate Change Project
The goal of this project is to improve incomes and quality of life for rural families – and reduce their vulnerability to the impact of climate change – by facilitating access to markets for value-added coffee and cocoa.
Project components include:
- Sustainably developing coffee and cocoa production to enhance the competitive position of producers' cooperatives and their members, while promoting practices that facilitate adaptation to climate change and to new market conditions
- Strengthening producers' organizations and public institutions in order to create an enabling environment for the development of coffee and cocoa value chains.
The project is national in scope. It will implemented in areas where cocoa and coffee are grown and traded in the departments of Nueva Segovia, Madriz, Estelí, Jinotega, Matagalpa and Rio San Juan Boaco, as well as communities and territories in the North Atlantic and South Atlantic autonomous regions. Targeting is based on the presence of favourable ecological conditions for the production of coffee and cocoa, vulnerability to climate change, poverty rates disaggregated by gender, and the proportion of participating families belonging to indigenous and Afro-Caribbean groups.
