The Shade Catalog

Empowering agroforestry with a catalog of tree species for Indonesian and Peruvian coffee landscapes

Available for in regional versions for Indonesia (in English and Bahasa) and Peru (in English and Spanish), the Catalog helps farmers select shade trees that are good for coffee, support and diversify household incomes and provide benefits to wildlife and ecosystem services. The Shade Catalog gathers existing data on trees found in coffee landscapes—from the species’ main attributes, uses and benefits to propagation and management tips—and makes it freely accessible to support whole-farm planning.

Indonesia and Peru are both major producers and exporters and two of the most biodiverse areas on the planet. Understanding and conserving the biodiversity of these regions will complement national and international efforts to increase the sustainability of each country's coffee sector.
