The 6-minute photostory documents the experiences of smallholder coffee farmers in Colombia’s southwestern Cauca department, who are already feeling the effects of rising temperatures on their crucial, high-value cash crop.
The English version on the story was shown at the recent United Nations COP16 Climate Change conference in Cancun, Mexico, and at the launch of the CGIAR’s new multimillion dollar climate change research program, or CCAFS.
The photostory is the first in a recent three-part series documenting the challenges of climate change to smallholder farmers in South America and Africa, which have been viewed over 10,000 times online since December.
