Coffee production is threatened by climate change
– PROTECT THE ORIGIN –
A recent study shows that coffee production is threatened by climate change. Climate developments are becoming increasingly complex, leading to imbalanced ecosystems, with planted areas at risk of being wiped out, negatively impacting the global coffee industry. Let’s find out more specifically with 43 Factory Coffee!
Climate change puts coffee production at high risk
The species richness and functional diversity of pollinators in the ecosystem are considered by scientists to be factors that contribute to coffee yield and quality. Currently, climate change is causing the earth to become warmer, and the frequency of natural disasters such as storms, floods, and landslides is becoming more and more serious. In addition, a series of forest areas have been cleared to convert into agricultural land and industrial planning, causing the living environment to gradually shrink. The researchers found that “the tropics will be at greatest risk to crop production because of reduced insect populations due to climate change and agricultural land use. Therefore, many coffee farms face the risk of pollination deficiency. Farmers have to spend more money on hiring artificial pollinators. This leads to negative changes in insect and pollinator biodiversity, reduces farm efficiency, increases production costs, and affects farmers’ sustainable income.
Furthermore, the climate is changing, the soil is less moist and erodes quickly, farmers have to increase the amount of fertilizer and water for irrigation because the planting area has lost most of the forest protection. Natural disasters and epidemics are likely to increase and be difficult to control, causing serious damage to many plantations. A prolonged decline in output that is not enough to meet consumer demand can lead to supply chain disruptions and skyrocketing prices, threatening the sustainability of the entire industry.
How to prevent the impact of climate change on coffee production?
The agricultural sector needs to make efforts to minimize changes in land use and protect natural habitats to avoid harming pollinators. Experts’ solutions all believe that this problem is not only the responsibility of coffee farmers. To restrain the negative impact of climate change on coffee production requires the involvement of relevant parties. Farmers are direct influencers of industry change. They need financial support, resources, training and market acceptance to transform towards sustainability. Therefore, organizations and departments need to actively develop projects and programs to support and encourage farmers to apply agroforestry and organic farming methods, limiting impacts on the environment. . In addition, it is necessary to increase awareness of sustainable coffee and its benefits to the community to expand the market and promote production.
