CIAT’s Andy Jarvis has been interviewed for Colombian National TV News about the threats and opportunities posed by climate change in the country. The feature was broadcast on Noticias Uno on Friday 4th December.

Andy, who is currently attending the COP15 UN Climate Change Conference 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark, discusses the challenges to one of Colombia’s most important cash crops – coffee – and how planting cacao could be one option to help small farmers adapt. He also mentions the importance of developing improved crop varieties, such as drought tolerant beans.
