Biodiversity degradation caused by climate change is disproportionately affecting poorer and more vulnerable countries like Guatemala and entrepreneurs like coffee farmer Ana.

THE TURNING POINT
How the EU and Ana are working towards sustainable coffee farming
Guatemala has already made great strides towards a greener future, updating its legal framework and setting up a national fund for climate change mitigation programmes.
The EU is working with Guatemala – and with networks of rural communities and small entrepreneurs like Ana – to provide long-term support for environmental and biodiversity protection and for sustainable, inclusive economic development.
Guatemala is quickly adjusting to sustainable agricultural processes. Even a monoculture like coffee can be turned into a successful and diverse farming system, and fincas like Ana’s are making coffee farming greener, actively benefiting the environment while creating sustainable employment and revenue in the local community.
