Coffee & Climate Change
su-re.co (Sustainability and Resilience.Co) is a young environmental think and do-tank company based in Canggu. Our human talent provides services in research, consultation, and capacity development on environmental management, sustainability, climate change, the green economy, and bio-energy.
Su-re.coffee is a non-profit project of su-re.co that aims at synergising climate change mitigation and adaptation in Indonesia by clean energy and climate smart agriculture in green business and policy engagement. It is currently supported by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program through Green-Win and Transrisk projects.
Everything we do is first and foremost scientifically driven.
- Climate change projections to determine the exposure and sensitivity of Indonesian areas to climate change. They are the basis of who, where, and why we choose the villages we support.
- Climate change adaptation which includes supporting famers to switch to more profitable and climate adapted crops such as coffee and sharing sustainable organic agricultural practices like agroforestry.
- Clean sustainable energy by developing our proper biogas digester solutions. As it can provide biogas and bio-fertilizer to the farmers from organic waste, this solution represents a good opportunity to stimulate a shift in energy production and supply among farmers’ communities.
What People Will Learn:
- Climate change in Indonesia
- Climate change adaptation and mitigation
- Coffee as a good adapted crop
- Functionality and importance of biogas
