Coffee Agroforestry: Transforming a vital agricultural sector for a conservation and development ‘win-win’ in Peru

The objective of this paper is to promote collaboration in policy and planning between business-oriented agriculturalists, conservation-oriented foresters, and climate change-oriented environmentalists. Agriculture, forestry, environment, and land-use policies should incentivize agroforestry over conventional coffee farming and other practices that lead to deforestation or degradation of agricultural land.
