THE CHALLENGE

Climate change is threatening smallholder farmers

More than 120 million people in the world rely on activities relating to coffee production, including 25 million smallholder farmers and workers.

With sales of coffee increasing around the world, demand is higher than ever before. Coffee farmers make up to 30 critical crop management decisions each season. Knowing when to fertilise, or when to spray, are time-sensitive decisions that protect the crop, maximise yields and enhance the quality of the beans, in the face of unpredictable weather patterns as a result of climate change.

THE ACCORD SOLUTION

Boosting farmer incomes through greater certainty, and better decisions

The ACCORD programme offers a smarter, data-driven solution by using satellite-enabled technology, combined with localised weather and ground truth data.

ACCORD helps farmers make timely, important decisions about crops with greater certainty than traditional methods. By helping farmers take action to mitigate the risks of climate change, it increases the reliability and sustainability of their coffee berry yield and bean quality. Farmers can rely on and increase the income they receive from coffee harvests, to support their families and protect their livelihoods, and in the long run ensure coffee is sustainable as a cash crop for smallholder farmers.
