We need to show farmers to understand and learn how to change their techniques in order to get climate-smart, says Chris Wille via @InnovaForum We agree.

A strong network of dedicated and like-minded partners allows #coffeeandclimate to reach more #farmers and provide vital information and techniques that will have a lasting impact.

Become an important contributor to a truly #sustainable cause.

Great to catch up with @safe_platform and particularly proud of the @BlueHarvestCRS results. Congratulations to @jpsolisv for his humble and thoughtful management of this process. Collaboration = Scale. #CoffeeExpo2019 @alexagriculture @Keurig @RnfrstAlliance @HRNStiftung

"Regarding our work in coffee, we focus on the being, not the bean." @jvonenden before presenting a video showcasing a young farmer's story in Honduras.

.@safe_platform member @HRNStiftung says that they focus not on the bean but on the being—the human being behind the coffee 🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏿

Doing #gender work is one thing. Making it in a scientifically sound approach the other. Follow @UAntwerpen researcher Els to the field in Tanzania and find out how she did this.

Come and learn about the importance of #gender in coffee production during a special screening of @xavhamon-s documentary @GrandLoCafe in NYC on April 4 @EqualOrigins @nationalcoffee @JavaVenturer

"The future of coffee begins with young farmers – but why should they care to continue producing?"
@jvonenden will speak about that during the International Coffee Congress on Sustainabilty by Deutscher Kaffeeverband, June, 5 in Berlin. Get your tickets!

Farmer families are working hard to see a future in #coffee. Not only because of income perspectives. Also because #climatechange is threatening the production. We support them to adapt and to mitigate. @sparkersays @SusFoodTrust

¿Sabes por qué ayudan los girasoles 🌻 a adaptarse al cambio climático?
Descubre más de lo que la iniciativa de café y clima sabe sobre como los girasoles pueden ayudar a caficultores 🌱👩‍🌾👨‍🌾 alrededor de todo el mundo!

Waiting for rain! Reduced rainfall in #Guatemala gives worrying signals that drought might return and could cause negative impact on coffee production. @CoffeeCocoaIntl #climatechange

The coffee industry also needs to put more attention into this, as climate change is a driver for additional deforestation for coffee production.

For the initiative for coffee&climate it is essential to support the development of structures that last - even after the project ends. This is what happened in Idugumbi, in southern Tanzania. 🇹🇿🚰 #waterforall

Calling for increased investment in youth engagement at origin: @DailyCoffeeNews on our Youth Mapping Report together with @FoodLab_SFL and @safe_platform
