Research Webinar 23: Environmental-economic benefits and trade-offs on certified coffee farms

Research webinar with Jeremy Haggar (Natural Resources Institute, University of Greenwich) and Gabriela Soto (Committee on Sustainability Assessment) on the environmental and economic benefits and trade-offs on certified coffee farms. This webinar presented on Wednesday 29th November 2017 looks at findings on economic and environmental outcomes on certified coffee farms in Nicaragua and economic outcomes in Costa Rica and Guatemala, evaluated using the COSA assessment framework. It also explores how certification outcomes vary relative to the typology of farms that participate and the country the farm is based in, as well as how far price premiums can mitigate the significant trade-off between income and on-farm tree diversity.
