Abstract

Coffee is an important crop in many countries and one of the world's most popular beverages. The world's most important tropical export is coffee. However, according to current research, Arabica coffee will be greatly affected by climate change. The world is alarmed by climate change as it affects agriculture and the products it produces. Coffee production depends on the need for safety. Climate change is the world's biggest problem and will be catastrophic unless it is changed and mitigated. Safe coffee is an important step towards solving the problem of climate change. The aim of this review is to examine the impact of climate change on coffee (Arabica) production and adaptation and mitigation strategies for these issues. It has been determined that the biggest impact of climate change on coffee production areas is high risk and more efforts are needed to prepare for the future of coffee. Climate change can be addressed using a variety of adaptation and mitigation strategies, including renewable energy, crop production, coffee-banana intercropping, and other conservation methods. Full implementation of these measures can help reduce the impact of climate change. There are some differences in establishing an Arabica coffee shade tree variety, determining appropriate shade, identifying drought-tolerant seeds, and affecting coffee.
