Vietnam faces dilemma on forests as climate change threatens coffee crops

  • Research shows that Vietnam may lose 50 percent of its current Robusta coffee production areas by 2050.
  • 550,000 smallholder farmers supply over 95 percent of Vietnam’s coffee, while another 500,000 people are engaged in seasonal work in the industry.
  • In order to continue growing this crop, the country can cut down forests to make space, or embrace them.
