Efforts to revive Kenya’s coffee sub-sector are facing a new challenge: Climate change.

ARUSHA, Tanzania (Xinhua) -- Tanzania is set to increase coffee production from 80,000 tonnes this year to 100,000 tonnes by 2021, an official from the country’s coffee board said Friday.

Climate plays important role in production of coffee. Adequate quantum and timely receipt of blossom rainfall for flowering and subsequent backing showers influence the berry set and yield of coffee. Harvesting of Arabica coffee in Kerala State with humid tropical climate in India is done by December-January and harvesting of Robusta coffee is taken up during January-February. In this paper, attempt was made to develop agrometeorological models to forecast the yield of these two varieties coffee by utilising monthly climate variables from January to December.

Due to gender-specific roles and responsibilities, men and women face varying challenges and opportunities to mitigate and adapt to climate change impacts.

Climate change will have serious repercussions for agriculture, ecosystems, and farmer livelihoods in Central America. Smallholder farmers are particularly vulnerable due to their reliance on agriculture and ecosystem services for their livelihoods. There is an urgent need to develop national and local adaptation responses to reduce these impacts, yet evidence from historical climate change is fragmentary. Modeling efforts help bridge this gap. Here, we review the past decade of research on agricultural and ecological climate change impact models for Central America.

Fears that climate change is triggering a coffee killing fungus which could wipe out plantations are unfounded, a new study suggests.
