Ecuador’s banana sector under climate change

Monday, 27 June 2016

The FAO published the results of an assessment of the impacts of climate change on the banana value chain in Ecuador. The biophysical analysis evaluated banana suitability under climate change scenarios; the impact of climate change on yields and disease incidence; and the carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions of banana production. The socio-economic analysis examined the national social policies to ensure a fairer distribution of returns to stakeholders across the banana value chain, especially with regard to smallholder farmers and banana plantation workers.
