BASELINE SURVEY FOR CLIMATE ADAPTATION PROJECT IN A FAIRTRADE PREMIUM COFFEE PROJECT – CPC BOLAVEN , LAOS
Climate change is putting coffee production and the livelihoods of coffee farmers and their families around the world at risk. Changes in temperature and rainfall patterns, as well as extreme weather events, can impact production cycles and negatively affect coffee production. Therefore, as a part of Climate Adaptation Project, officials from Fairtrade Network of Asia Pacific Producers (NAPP) conducted a baseline survey at ‘The Bolaven Plateau Coffee Producers Cooperative’ in Laos on 31st August 2018.
The survey was initiated by Fairtrade for setting the framework for learning, adapting, improving and delivering impact for Climate Change resilience and to support the farmers in adapting to climate change.
It will not only outline the starting point of the project and set the foundation for the whole M&E framework and its tools but also the methodologies and sources of information for both tracking inputs delivery and large-scale changes.
The visit includes data collections and gathering to be analysed for farmer specific interpretation data, and recommendation of Climatic Adaptive Agricultural Practices for enhancing yield quality and sustainability.
