Coffee, Catholics and Climate Change in Colombia

Experts say that, in 30 years, about half of the land currently being used for coffee production in Nariño province will not be suitable for coffee production because of the impact of climate change. This means that about half of the 40,000 families (some 240,000 people) who currently rely on coffee production to subsist, will no longer be able to do so. In response, Catholic Relief Services now works with 1600 families in Nariño who are struggling with the impact of climate change. Camila DeChalus reports on how these families are experimenting with new techniques to sustain coffee production despite severe climate change.
