Transcript

  • 1. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector Carbon Footprinting on Farm LevelTrade Standards Practitioners Network (TSPN) Conference Bern, Switzerland – 17 November 2010 Henk van Rikxoort
  • 2. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector Agenda The Cool Farm Tool  Project behind the tool  How does this tool work? A carbon footprint step by step Results Baragwi Co-op Kenya  Carbon footprint Co-op  Meaning and use of the results
  • 3. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee SectorWithin the SanganaPPP a coffee specific The Cool Farm ToolCFT is developed The Cool Farm Tool is….  ...part of the Global Agriculture Climate Assessment (GACA) of Unilever and Sustainable Food Lab  …a universally-applicable tool developed by Unilever, Sustainable Food Lab and the Univ. of Aberdeen ... a tool for gathering and calculating emission and sequestration data on farm level … currently being sponsored by 17 actors to improve its usability for different crops and geographies
  • 4. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector The Cool Farm Tool (cont.)
  • 5. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector The Cool Farm Tool (cont.)The Cool Farm Tool calculates emissions for: Crop Management  Primary processing Field Energy Use  Livestock Sequestration  Transport…and presents results in tables and graphs:
  • 6. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector A carbon footprint step by step1. Development of process and emission maps2. Defining the boundaries and cut-off level3. Collecting the emission data:  Coffee production: Yield, Land use and tillage changes, Fertilisation and agrochemical use, soil type, texture, organic carbon content, PH and drainage, Shade cropping and agro- forestry density, tree species and DBH.  (Wet) processing : Machinery emissions, methane emissions, waste water use, handling of pulp, and parchment layers  Transport: Petrol / diesel use4. Calculating the carbon footprint5. Use the results (publication, reduction strategies)
  • 7. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector PRE-RESULTS: This is based on first data collection and does not reflect all emissions that need to be taken into account
  • 8. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector PRE-RESULTS: This is based on first data collection and does not reflect all emissions that need to be taken into account
  • 9. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector Meaning of the results Most promising scenarios within this farming system to reduce net emissions are: • Reduction on fertilizer use by adopting composting methodologies • Reduction on pesticide use by taking on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) technologies • Exploiting the opportunity of agriculture to store carbon in soils and biomass optimally by using reduced tillage, agro-forestry and avoiding land-use change
  • 10. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee SectorThe Coffee CFT + the Climate ModuleThe Coffee CFT will… …indicate emission hot spots and sequestration datawhich allows for defining reduction strategies …indicate changes over time in emissions andsequestered GHG stocks …contain a training for producers to show them how togather the necessary data for the Coffee Cool Farm Tool…prepare producers to measure emissions up to dry-milling. This enables the industry to access data for carbonfootprinting
