  14. 14. FRAMEWORK FOR EFFECTIVEMITIGATION}  In ´t Veld (2002): Effectiveness = Content * Acceptance}  Adapted to: MITx = PRCy * FSBz Where: MIT = mitigation, kg CO2-e PRC = correct practices FSB = implementation feasibility 14 The Potential of Mesoamerican Coffee Production Systems to Mitigate Climate Change
  15. 15. FRAMEWORK FOR EFFECTIVEMITIGATION 1.  Increase on-farm carbon stocksPRC (correct practices) focus: 2.  Increase fertiliser use efficiency 3.  Reduce wastewater generation 15 The Potential of Mesoamerican Coffee Production Systems to Mitigate Climate Change

  19. 19. RECOMENDATIONS}  To CIAT §  Start discussions with GMCR to implement the climate change mitigation framework in their Mesoamerican coffee supply chains. §  Start further investigations in low CH4 emitting coffee processing methods and machinery. Pay due attention to coffee quality.}  To Sustainability standards §  Address effective climate change mitigation practices in standards. §  Ensure the feasibility of implementation for coffee farmers. 19 The Potential of Mesoamerican Coffee Production Systems to Mitigate Climate Change
