Project

Empowering Robusta Farmers for Coffee Garden Rejuvination and Enterprise Development to Strengthen and Diversify Incomes (EMPOWER)

Introduction

Farmers in Lagrai and La Ly saw a significant drop in production last year, as irrigation water shortages occurred due to lower than normal rainfall. The farming systems in Gia Lai are very different from Dak Lak and monocropping of coffee and pepper is far more prevalent. This makes the farms more susceptible to climate change, as evapotranspiration on unshaded farmers is higher, as are soil temperatures

The Project

The project will focus on training activities to improve farmers and pesticide dealers’ knowledge and awareness on using pesticides and enhance farmer’s resilience against climate change.
