Case study 10 – Climate change and climate variability adaptation measures on coffee farms in four municipalities of Madriz, Nicaragua

Partners for Resilience (PfR) implemented the Program for Disaster Risk Management in the Face of Climate Change in 28 communities of the municipalities of Somoto, Las Sabanas, San Lucas and San José de Cusmapa in the department of Madriz. One of the program’s actions was to sensitize actors in the economic sector on three issues—disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA) and ecosystem management and restoration (EMR)—with the purpose of strengthening livelihoods and community resilience.
