- [May 2020] A consortium led by INECOL (Ecological Institute) in collaboration with Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Ecosur (linked to the coffee research group GIEZCA), Universidad Panamericana, Instituto de Investigaciones Forestales, Agrícolas y Pecuarias, Universidad Veracruzana and Centro GEO has been selected to carry out this study.
- [February 2020] A Call for Proposals was launched for consortia to develop a research proposal outlining scenario analysis for the implementation of the project.
Scope of work
To analyze the main trade-offs in terms of environmental services, natural capital, and human well-being among the different land uses for coffee production in the regions of Veracruz, Chiapas, Puebla, and Oaxaca in Mexico. A full quantification of the value chain and an economic assessment of the expected impacts for biodiversity, ecosystem services and livelihoods of farmers and other social actors, as well as predicted changes in land cover, are expected.
