Department of Environment and Geography Lecture Series

Coffee has become an export of global significance for countries in East Africa, reaching diverse markets across the world, and with large numbers of farmers involved in its production. There are enormous potential benefits from the growing coffee industry but significant environmental, economic and social challenges are emerging. Drawing on the experience of East Africa this talk will consider the nature of these challenges and how they might be overcome for the benefit of producers and consumers.
