Ethiopia’s coffee industry threatened by climate change

Global warming is affecting the lives of an estimated 15 million Ethiopian farmers, who heavily rely on the coffee industry for their livelihood.

Ethiopia is Africa’s largest coffee producer and ranks fifth globally, but dry spells are having a direct impact on production.

“The amount of coffee we can produce is fluctuating, especially when there is a lot of sun during the dry seasons in recent years,” Kebede Garmamu, coffee farmer, told Al Jazeera.
