Uganda’s coffee sector comprises c. 1.7 million householders and over 3.5 million people in related activities, generating c. 25% of the country’s export earnings. Sustainability of the sector in Uganda is paramount. The aim of this project is to demonstrate the substantial value of Uganda’s coffee natural capital for: Uganda’s coffee economy, livelihood sustainability, climate change adaptation, and ecosystem service provision. It will also reveal the positive synergies between climate change adaptation, biodiversity, the ecosystem, and commercial activity (coffee farming).
