Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America and one of the places most affected by climate change in the world. Yet 80% of the population depend on agriculture for survival.
Adapta Nicaragua aims to build the resilience of 1,000 low-income producers of cocoa and honey.
The project is being implemented by Christian Aid, our partner Centro Humboldt and private sector partner Ingemann.
Ingemann is a family owned and managed supplier of fine cocoa from Nicaragua. They are already associated with around 800 farmers involved in the project.
Centro Humboldt will carry out climatic interpretations and develop specific recommendations for cocoa and honey crops, to help farmers build their resilience to climate change and increase their yields.
