Our partner Centro Humboldt develops works on climate monitoring across the country, strengthening local capacities to monitor the climate variability and promoting the climate monitoring network with small farmers, cooperatives and local organisations.
Our partners Hibiscus Cooperative and Soppexcca help hibiscus, coffee and cocoa producers to organise themselves into cooperatives and provides training that helps them improve production, marketing and sales skills so they can reach new customers and earn a better living.
The farming cooperatives supported by Soppexcca are diversifying to combat the impact of climate change on coffee plantations. Now the small farmers are introducing cocoa as part of an innovative initiative funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and Christian Aid.
Adapta resilience programme
We are working with the private sector and funders in Nicaragua to develop the Adapta programme, which is promoting climate resilience with cocoa and honey producers.
Partners, IEEP and Centro Humboldt, in alliance with grassroot organisations, gathered evidence to prove that tax evasion and privileges from mining companies have negative consequences on the national budget and government capacity in social investment.
