BREEDCAFS, un proyecto de investigación de la UE que adapta variedades de café para agroforestería
Agroforestry is one way of adapting coffee production to climate change, but few varieties are suitable. BREEDCAFS, a new project led by CIRAD and funded by the EU H2020 programme, aims to diversify the range of varieties available for this more sustainable production method. Two European roasters will be involved in choosing varieties over the course of the project, which is due to begin in April. They will be put in contact with coffee growers practising agroforestry in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Vietnam and Cameroon.
