#VoicesOfTheCoffeeNAMA: Diego Loría, technical advisor, ICAFE
An important focus of our work has been the support of coffee farmers to adapt to the impact of climate change. Diego Loría, a technical advisor at ICAFE, has already noticed that the number of shade tree species and disease-resistant coffee varieties has increased considerably in coffee plantations. But for him, the most striking thing is the change of mentality of the traditional producers: “They already identify more with the Good Agricultural Practices we promote - the important thing is that the producer himself recognizes their importance.”
