Honey with coffee reinforces climate resilience

Honey with coffee reinforces climate resilience

While honey can sweeten coffee for the drinker, coffee farmers of Kodagu district of Karnataka are realising that raising bees for honey in their farms can sweeten their economic returns. It is one of the innovative methods being tried out in the district to provide additional financial incentives to coffee farmers to conserve the landscape they have inherited. This, in turn, can strengthen climate resilience and improve the water flow into the Cauvery. Writes S. Gopikrishna Warrier for India Climate Dialogue.
