Programa de Medio Ambiente – Gerencia Técnica © Copyright FNC año 2014 The coffee zone Coffee in Colombia
Programa de Medio Ambiente – Gerencia Técnica © Copyright FNC año 2014 o Coffee is grown by 577,961 producers that cover 3.13 million hectares of land, of which 972,018 ha are planted with coffee. o Average coffee producer cultivates 1.68 ha of coffee and owns another 3.73 ha for other purposes. o April ‘13 – March ‘14: production of 11.4 million bags, of which 10.4 million were exported. o 27% of producers are women. o 28% of producers linked to some protocol of sustainability. The coffee growers * Coffee in Colombia * Information from February 2014

Programa de Medio Ambiente – Gerencia Técnica © Copyright FNC año 2014 Deforestation and loss of Environmental Services: Continues in Colombia, but the rate has diminished. What has incremented is natural forest degradation. The causes of deforestation in Colombia are animal husbandry, some cash-crops and agroindustry, illicit crops, large-scale projects of infrastructure, mining (V National Report to CBD, March 2014). There is no evidence that land is cleared to expand the area of coffee cultivation. Some Indicators
Programa de Medio Ambiente – Gerencia Técnica © Copyright FNC año 2014 Coffee and Shade: Important to make clear that the fact of less shade-grown coffee does not imply a loss of biodiversity. BD is not managed at the level of a coffee plantation or at the farm, but on a larger scale: the micro- watershed, an ecosystem, a region. In the northern coffee growing regions there is traditionally more shade than the centre of the country. 97% of the coffee grown in the indigenous territories of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is shade- grown Febr Total Coffee Area ha ha ha ha w/shade or semi-shade (67%) (53%) (51%) (44%) Some Indicators

Programa de Medio Ambiente – Gerencia Técnica © Copyright FNC año 2014 Landscape Management Tools Five steps of activities to implement the LMT and integrate these in good agricultural practices system: Step 1: Baseline, with basic information about the state of: a) biodiversity in the watershed; b) performance of the farms, and c) knowledge and perceptions of farmers towards biodiversity and conservation. Step 2: Participatory planning for the construction of the corridor (which LMT and where). Step 3: Education program with main activities: a) training plan, and b) training workshops with researchers (monitoring). Step 4: Integrated system of GAP (waste management, water treatment, use of agrochemicals). Step 5: Evaluation of project results / impacts in the watershed (comparison against baseline).

Actions are being scaled-up and coverage is now in 11 of the 22 coffee producing departments. Revenue from biodiversity-friendly coffee cultivation, by certified or non- certified products and/or payment for ecosystem services (PES) increased 8% at the coffee farms participating in the project during its implementation in 2011, 2012 and Specifically, income certification / verification increased by 12% the net income of coffee, PES/Carbon revenues by 9%, income from property tax exemption by 7%, revenue by PES/Water 13%, and revenue from value chain by 5%.
