This is a presentation that I made in October 2015 for a coffee and climate initiative.
Issues that will be faced in Arabica coffee production areas in the next 20 to 30 years.
Increasing temperatures impacting Arabica coffee production.
Mapping the problem to determine where coffee & climate change will cause negative impacts.
Action is needed to identify the areas most at risk and then to plan mitigation efforts.
In 2015, this is the proposal that I drafted to address coffee and climate issues.
I created a schematic of the different entities that could work together to address this issue.
I proposed a way forward that included drafting an unsolicited proposal for funding by aid agency with an initial budget of $100,000.
There was a general discussion of the issue and potential plans to help define and address it but no final proposal was drafted.
