Coffee production can be practised in a wide range of production systems from high-input mono-crop plantations to coffee agroforests, between these are many different kinds of agroforestry practices with a range of sustainability characteristics. Across these different production systems there are multiple interactions and trade-offs between productivity, carbon footprint, biodiversity and resilience. Sustainability certifications such as Organic, Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance aim to compensate or recognise the investments by farmers in sustainability. Currently 40% of global coffee production is sustainably certified.

In this webinar, Jeremy Haggar, Professor of Agroecology at the Natural Resources Institute, University of Greenwich, will present evidence of the environmental and economic outcomes for certified farmers, and discuss some of the key opportunities and challenges this presents communities and the wider industry.
