Results 2017: Coffee NAMA trains 3,000 producers in application of Good Agricultural Practices

In 2017, the Coffee NAMA not only continued working with coffee mills on the measurement of carbon and water footprints, but also focused on another target group: coffee producers. In approx. 30 workshops that took place throughout the country, more than 3,000 producers were trained in the application of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) in order to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change, without reducing the productivity of their farms.

Several agricultural advisors from ICAFE, MAG and several coffee mills, as well as coffee producers from different areas of the country explain the impact that the project has had on their daily work.
