Climate Change Could Make Coffee a Major Driver of Tropical Deforestation.

“We projected global coffee consumption into the future to better understand the potential volumes of coffee demand, then we modeled the climate requisites of coffee cultivation, in order show how coffee cultivation might shift to different landscapes and put new pressure on tropical forests,” said Tim Killeen, the report’s lead author. “Ideally, plant breeders will develop new varieties that are adapted to the harsher conditions of the future, while, simultaneously, improving productivity. That is a tall order, but not impossible. If it doesn’t happen, then coffee production will shift to landscapes with conditions similar to today’s coffee growing areas.”
