Potential for carbon sequestration on coffee farms

In 2016 and 2017, we travelled to smallholder farms in Ethiopia on behalf of a coffee trader. During our on-site visits, we collected data to determine the level of carbon sequestration potential on the farms.

The basis for our carbon sequestration potential and carbon footprint calculations was the Cool Farm Tool. In addition, we were later able to model how the impact of climate change on farms could be reduced.
