01.12.2020 – Action Alliance for Sustainable Bananas (ABNB)

Climate change and adaptation to climate change is the main topic of the Action Alliance for Sustainable Bananas (ABNB). The aim is to make the banana supply chain more sustainable and, in this context, also more adapted to climate change.

The scientific basis for this work of the ABNB is the new study “Climate change and its effects on banana production in Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, and Ecuador” by HFFA Research GmbH and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). The study was commissioned by GIZ and ABNB and financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The entire study is available for download in English. You can find the download link here.
The study is currently being translated into Spanish and will be available in Spanish by the end of March 2021.

The results of the study were presented in an online event on 10 December by the authors Dr. Steffen Noleppa (HFFA Research GmbH) and Prof. Dr. Christoph Gornott (PIK). The presentation slides can be downloaded here.
