    SUSTAINABLE COFFEE PRODUCTION IN THE BRAZILIAN AMAZON: LESSONS FROM A LOCAL INITIATIVE

    Brazil is the largest producer of coffee in the world. In the municipality of Apuí, however, coffee production has been on a steady decline, losing land to extensive livestock production – one of the main drivers of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. The Apuí Agroforestry Coffee project, initiated by the Institute for Conservation and Sustainable Development in the Amazon (IDESAM), is proving to be an effective solution to revive sustainable coffee production while also conserving and restoring the Amazon forest. In this podcast episode, you will hear from Pedro Soares, Manager of Climate Change and REDD+ at IDESAM, about this project and its impact.
