      This field is limited by 5000 characters.

      The Dominican Republic government aims to implement the Coffee NAMA in a participatory process between 2017 and 2028. It pretend to cover the two most important GHG sources in national coffee subsector: the coffee farms and the mills. The Coffee NAMA includes four measures for reducing GHG in the subsector: 1. reduction in the use of nitrogenised fertilizers and N2O emissions, 2. avoidance of methane through improved treatment and reuse of wastewater in mills, 3. improved use and management of biomass as energy source instead of wood and 4. carbon capture through spread of agro-forestry systems. The implementation of these measures requires institution and capacity building, evidence building and knowledge sharing.

      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. The NAMA Low Carbon Coffee of Dominican Republic  fits in the National Policy of Climate Change (PNCC by its acronyms in Spanish) created by Decree 269-15,  as well in the  National Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change in the Agricultural Sector of the Dominican Republic (NASAP). 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 (CODOCAFE by its acronyms in Spanish), as well with the private sector to make coffee production more climate-friendly.

      The support of a collective and collaborative GHG monitoring system in the coffee subsector will allow changing the perspective in the Dominican Republic agriculture sector and also in other countries in the region and an international level on the production of low carbon coffee, and will enable a stronger position in marketing of low carbon or carbon-neutral agriculture products and thus leverage private contributions to less GHG-intensive coffee and agriculture production methods. The NAMA pretends to stimulates local capacities for low-carbon technologies and measures and provides a suitable surrounding for technology transfer.

      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. The Coffee NAMA seeks an intensive cooperation with private sector, with technology providers as well as coffee distributions systems, especially in Europe, United States, Japan, Taiwan, Canada and others.

      The financial support could also be provided in kind as the need is to construct a complete GHG baseline and projected scenarios, the MRV process and the financial component of the NAMA. There is also need to strengthen research in order to reduce GHG in wastewater management and utilization of the methane generated in coffee process, to scale the NAMA activities among all geographic zones where coffee producers are settled in Dominican Republic.
