The initiative for Coffee & Climate

Stefan Ruge
Program Manager Climate at HRNS
Speaker bio >

With over two billion cups of coffee consumed around the world every day, it’s easy to forget what is behind every cup: A coffee farming family battling longer droughts, heavier rains, lower yields – battling the effects of climate change. The initiative for coffee&climate (c&c) addresses these effects by developing climate-smart tools and knowledge and making them accessible to smallholder coffee farming families around the world. c&c unites farmer organizations, coffee companies, and non-governmental organizations to make coffee farming climate resilient and create a lasting change.
