Study of the climate adaptation of wild coffee (Coffea canephora)

Coffee is the second largest trade commodity exported by Southern countries. Brazil is the first coffee producer worldwide and is also an important consumer. Coffea canephora (Robusta) provides 33% of global, and 22% of Brazilian coffee production. Climate change (warming and irregular rainfall patterns) however would have strong negative impacts in coffee production. On our knowledge, adaptive strategies mitigating these effects largely (...)

Successful inculsion of Small-scale Farmers in upgrading value chains: Rice and Milk in the Senegal river Valley

Sustainability of urban agriculture: public policies and innovations

Sustainability of urban agriculture: public policies and innovations

Bibliographic work has been done in the resarch field, both in theory and in relation to the Swiss context. Field investigations have been conducted in Geneva as well as in the agglomeration of Lausanne-Morges, with farmers, elected officials and professionals of territorial and agricultural development. These data helped developping an analysis framework of urban agriculture, between private management and public policy: which components (...)
