Henk van Rikxoort - Carbon Footprinting on Farm Level

  1. 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. 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. 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. 4. Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the Kenyan Coffee Sector The Cool Farm Tool (cont.)
  5. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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
