Climate Resilience Training for Young Farmers
Coffee plays a significant role in the economy of Honduras, but the effects of climate change have taken their toll on coffee production. From rising temperatures to inconsistent rainfall, coffee crops are seeing a decrease in yields, pressuring coffee production in a local coffee economy that supports approximately 120,000 farmers.
Despite the increasing challenges in coffee production, some young Honduran adults are motivated to stay engaged in coffee by taking over their family business. Access to high-quality agronomy training and services helps motivate these young adults, so Peet’s, working with Interamerican Coffee and Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung (HRNS), trained young ‘Climate Pioneers’ in climate adaptation methodologies and life and leadership skills.
The project has also supported 482 coffee farming families in building their resilience in the face of changing agro-climatic conditions.
