Coffee agroforestry systems

At CATIE we work on coffee agroforestry systems to enhance and diversify the production of this crop and improve the livelihoods of rural farming families.

With our work we have been able to influence the development of national policies and we provide technical support to hundreds of people through the vehicles of training and the scientific and technical information we produce.

In addition, in partnership with region’s coffee institutes, we aim to improve national legislation for the purpose of incorporating environmental services into coffee farms.

Unique research platform

Thanks to our extensive and elaborate platforms, at CATIE we do a lot of research on the environmental aspects and ecosystem services provided to society by coffee farms with trees.

This platform includes outstanding research such as:
