Impacts of climate change on supply chains in Guatemala, Bogota and Jamaica
Climate change is expected to have varied impacts on the livelihoods of small-scale farmers around the world. Whether these changes will have negative or positive impacts will be highly dependent on the farmers’ ability to adapt and take advantage of the changing climatic conditions, while simultaneously overcoming the challenges.
In light of the pending impacts that climate change is expected to have on the livelihood of small farmers around the world, CIAT, on behalf of Oxfam LAC, has recently completed a series of research aimed at identifying the potential impacts that climate change will have on this group. These research, conducted in Guatemala, Bogota and Jamaica, also assessed the potential impacts that climate change may have on efforts to establish a sustainable supply chain from these small farms to particular markets. Additionally, CIAT’s scientists and researchers have identified possible adaptation and mitigation strategies and have evaluated the potential impacts that such efforts are likely to have.
