The objective of the NAMA is to reduce GHG emissions in the coffee sector

Activities: (2017 - 2028)
The NAMA, based on a participatory process, covers the two most important GHG sources in the national coffee subsector: the coffee farms and the mills.

The Coffee NAMA includes four mitigation measures:

  • reduction in the use of nitrogenised fertilizers and N2O emissions
  • avoidance of methane through improved treatment and reuse of wastewater in mills
  • improved use and management of biomass as energy source instead of wood
  • carbon capture through spread of agro-forestry systems

This will be achieved through technical advice to administration, extension services and coffee producer’s practices transformation, through partnerships with the international coffee and fertilizer industry, and through financial support instruments like grants, concessional loans or guarantees for coffee farmers and mills.

Farmers and millers will become innovative entrepreneurs and thus secure their own existence. The NAMA will offer up-scaling potential for the roll-out to other sectors of agricultural production in Dominican Republic.

This NAMA will facilitate more intensive cooperation between the leading institutions like, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, National Council for Climate Change and Clean Development Mechanism and Dominican Coffee Council.
