IES Webinar: Seeking sustainability for coffee farmers and consumers

Across different coffee production systems there are multiple interactions and trade-offs between productivity, carbon footprint, biodiversity and resilience. Sustainability certifications such as Organic, Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance aim to compensate or recognise the investments by farmers in sustainability.

Jeremy Haggar, Professor of Agroecology at the Natural Resources Institute, presents evidence of the environmental and economic outcomes for certified farmers, and discusses some of the key opportunities and challenges faced by communities and the wider industry.
