Life without coffee?
“Without strong action to reduce emissions, climate change is projected to cut the global area suitable for coffee production by as much as 50% by 2050.”

If you’re a coffee lover, the idea of facing the day without your favourite brew is difficult. For coffee farmer Silashi, a future without coffee puts the survival of his family at risk. Join us for the story behind climate change and coffee. 80% of the world’s coffee is produced by small scale farmers. These farmers and their livelihoods are negatively affected by climate change. With the help of Fairtrade and FairClimate Fund, they are working to address these issues. Learn how you can make a difference for coffee farmers around the world AND save the future of your coffee.
