There are 500 million small farmers across the world producing around 70% of the global food supply. They do this despite the numerous threats and challenges that they face on a daily basis. This is no small feat. So, in order to support production, we are working with these small farmers to develop their own innovative low-cost solutions.
We are Cafédirect Producers’ Foundation (CPF) and we are a charity with difference. We are led by small farmers and owned by 38 producer organisations and their 280,000 members across Latin America and Africa.
Drinking a glass of water is something most of us take for granted, but more than 750 million people around the world still do not have access to safe water. Through ClimateCare, we are helping to address this, by supporting the award winning LifeStraw Carbon for Water project in Kenya.
A partnership between ClimateCare and global health company Vestergaard allows for this project to cut carbon emissions and provides safe water to over 4.5 million people in Kenya.
The Ecotourism Certification Standards series continues with the Ecotourism Kenya Eco-Rating certification. Kenya boasts seven diverse habitats within its borders; they range from open savannah to sandy beaches, deep forests to snow-capped mountains, wild deserts to coral reefs and river deltas. Besides elephants, rhinos, buffalo, lions, and leopards, several endangered species can be found in Kenya including the Grevy zebra, black rhino, African hunting dog, sable, and Hirola antelope. Not surprisingly, Kenya has a long tradition of hosting safari travelers and relying on tourism receipts for much of its gross national product.
