The coffee farmers in Peru adapting to climate change - The Ecologist

Peru is among the group of countries that will be most affected by climate change, according to the UK's Tyndall Centre for Climate Change. It can always be argued that specific extreme weather events aren't directly connected to climate change, but proof of cause and effect is a moot point for these small farmers who can't afford the luxury of climate change scepticism. Peru's Vice-President Marisol Espinoza told the Ecologist , ‘We are already living the effects of climate change. We've experienced massive landslides and flooding along the coastal regions as well as in the mountains. It's happening in the here and now. This is not about criticizing, but about proactively coming up with responses and solutions to tackle climate change that address the issue for the poor and give them a way forward'.
