Climate finance weinmann (cafédirect)adaptation business perspective insights-ccxg gf march2014

  1. 1. Climate Change Adaptation Insights from business perspective Wolfgang Weinmann CCXG Global Forum OECD Centre , Paris, 18-19 March 2014
  2. 2. @Cafedirect_HQ What will be covered About Cafédirect Understanding the problem & approach to cc Why invest in cc adaptation Interventions & investment Learnings Scaling up opps What’s needed
  3. 3. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Mission Cafédirect is an independent coffee, tea and cocoa company. We champion the work & passion of smallholder growers, delivering great tasting drinks to improve livelihoods, whilst pioneering better ways of doing business
  4. 4. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Approach to climate change challenge Farm-to-cup carbon footprint along full supply chain regardless of control or influence Look into full picture: hence consider adaptation as much as mitigation on climate change challenge seek collaboration to tackle the issues: b2b, public- private partnerships, engagement with end consumers Integrated within overall business strategy, not a separate add-on
  5. 5. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Why invest in climate change Supply: reinvest in our supply chain of vulnerable tea/ coffee/cocoa communities to secure future quality & availability Triple-bottom-impact: High social- environmental impact investment Env: improved agricultural practices; biodiversity enhancement; natural resource protection & restoration; improved resilience Social: reduced vulnerability levels of smallholder communities; improved resilience Story: pioneering work = point-of-difference in the marketplace Engages end consumers and customers alike with human side of product
  6. 6. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Interventions & investment 4 countries / 4 smallholder coffee/tea organisations/21,000 farmers: risk-opportunity analysis methodology developed; site-specific climate research & risk maps created; adaptation strategies prioritised and implemented; handbooks created; knowledge & information sharing secured; Type of adaptation interventions: updated agricultural practices; diversification; new technology; natural resource management; awareness raising;
  7. 7. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Interventions & investment mixture of public – private funding: Cafédirect, giz/ Germany, smallholder organisations, voluntary carbon market, access to wider public/ private funding for smallholders
  8. 8. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Results so far for Cafédirect Supply side: too early to tell….. adaptation measures on farm will take various years to materialise in yield and quality improvement and/or security Triple-bottom-impact: Delivers big time on overall impact as a company: shareholders expect high social- environmental impact next to commercial Smallholder farmers much more aware of issues & increased capabilities to adapt Additional resources mobilised for smallholder communities Story: Coverage of work in major UK broadsheets, in trade publications and environmental journals Wide use of social media to spread the coverage of cc work
  9. 9. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Learnings Farmers need to be in charge of process: all about their individual strategies Kayonza/ Uganda CESMACH/ Mexico Needs stronger impact data to know what works best/ roi on adaptation side Link up more with agricultural science community on this
  10. 10. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ CESMACH/Mexico: solar dryers
  11. 11. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ CESMACH/ Mexico: coffee quality control Rolando Roblero López scored highest (84.5 SCAA) on quality in his community- he did use a solar dryer!
  12. 12. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Learnings Conservation of genetic diversity / selection of resistant plants Financing of sustainable adaptation for agriculture – away from ‘aid’-approach towards market oriented tools (carbon trade; environmental services; etc.) Conflicting cycles: short term business  long term cc
  13. 13. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Replication/ Scaling up Risk-Opportunity-Analysis ROA methodology now used by different stakeholders (RUTA/ Central America; giz/ Germany; smallholder organisations, Cafédirect Producers’ Foundation, etc.) Adaptation initiatives rolled out to further 10 smallholder organisations across East Africa (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania) and Latin America (Mexico, Haiti, Dom Rep), reaching ≈ 55,000 farmers Replication of ROA methodology, location specific adaptation strategy design, enhancing farm resilience
  14. 14. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Wider scaling up opps Full integration of cc adaptation into smallholder business strategies, not in isolation Access the voluntary carbon market: approach of linking various communities is promising eg reforestation, energy stoves, etc. On-farm: more research/ tools on carbon capture available eg soil, shade trees, biochar etc. Intra supply chain approach: joining up on other end Industry bodies could convince competing brands/ companies to collaborate on upstream supply chain work
  15. 15. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ What is needed from business? Complete re-think on how we measure success importance of Integrated Accounting Beyond a crisis mentality- be more proactive More significant collaboration across & between business, public sector and academia/ scientific community
  16. 16. @Cafedirect_HQ@Cafedirect_HQ Kayonza/ Uganda project: wetland protection and afforestation
