This Plan Vivo certified project run is run by Solidaridad in Nicaragua and supports smallholder coffee farmers in Jinotega and Matagalpa districts. The project helps them overcome low productivity and crop loss from climate change by encouraging them to transition from cultivated land to agroforestry. 

In these coffee regions agroforestry systems promoted by Solidaridad serve as a climate change mitigation and adaptation strategy in these coffee landscapes. The integration of trees within these coffee systems enhances biodiversity, protects crops and top soil from harsh weather conditions, and provides a financial and environmental safeguard for farmers when facing disease and pest outbreaks, floods, drought or other climate related disasters.
