18 minute Documentary – FWP’s Small Scale Farmers Cool The Planet

Learn how climate change is impacting small-scale farmers with crops ranging from cotton, coffee, coconut and palm fruit. Hear from fair brands on how they are working with their farmer partners to implement on the ground practices to combat climate change. We’ll discuss how fair trade businesses can drive policy towards solutions, and share practical ideas for supporting small-scale producers who have not created the program but are most affected by climate change.
