how to use?

the c&c toolbox is based on search results. Type in your keywords or queries and filter by your personal needs. Watch how to use the toolbox:

filtered by… ?

the c&c toolbox is structured into several categories that help filter tools according to your specific needs and context. You can filter the tool based on the topic that describes the purpose of the tool, the climatic hazard which threaten coffee production, the country for which a tool is envisioned and by its content types which are attached to the tool . Please filter on the respective categories on the right for more specific search results.

case studies

to communicate key findings effectively the c&c toolbox provides case studies for tested tools. The case studies include recommendations for further trials or larger-scale implementation, as well as important lessons learned. You can download each case study attached to its tool or use the case study map to access further.

Climate Risk Profile – Uganda

The effective design of adaptation strategies requires an understanding of climatic changes and the regional context. This brief therefore discusses climate impacts for Uganda and potential pathways to mainstream climate smart interventions in the country.


Mainstreaming climate smart coffee requires critical stocktaking of the sector fundamentals, already evident and projected climatic developments relevant to coffee production and promising practices for the future, and of institutional and financial enablers for climate smart coffee adoption.

The brief first describes the national context of coffee production, recent developments and potentially climate relevant aspects. To provide an efficient guideline for adaptation practices, we triangulated observed and perceived climatic change with a gradient of climate change impacts for coffee production. The gradient is a coffee specific evaluation of projected climatic changes. The effectiveness of climate smart coffee practices was evaluated in the Ugandan context.

The information in the brief enables interventions to effectively support adaption in the region at scale.


  • High costs, labor and knowledge.
  • Not for all coffee countries/region reliable data is available.
  • Anticipatory scaling of climate adaptation is limited by uncertain climate data.


  • Costs are about 70.000 USD per country/ regional profile.

Recommended Activities

  • Need to engage different scientist and a fair mediation between different scientific approaches.
  • Need to include local experts to ensure relevance.

Further Comments

  • Use of the results for landscape and farm – level Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) activities.
