    Sustainable coffee production in the Brazilian Amazon: Lessons from a local initiative

    Brazil is the largest producer of coffee in the world. In the municipality of Apuí, however, coffee production has been on a steady decline, losing land to extensive livestock production - one of the main drivers of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon.

In this episode, you will hear from Pedro Soares, Manager of Climate Change and REDD+ at IDESAM, about this project and its impact.
