Fairtrade event at COP23: “Climate fairness in global value chains”

Friday, 10 November 2017
11.30 am – 12.30 pm, COP23 Bonn Zone

Image of farmers planting sugar cane in FijiFiji’s sugar farmers are in the front line of climate change, with floods, droughts and tropical cyclones regularly devastating crops. Changing weather patterns mean traditional growing seasons have been disrupted. Saltwater contamination from coastal flooding is destroying farmland, and some coastal communities have had to relocate.

Join us at COP23 to learn more on how climate change is hitting sugar cultivation in Fiji, how farmers there are fighting back, and how Fairtrade is supporting them to adapt and build resilience. Take part in our quiz and hear sugar farmer Parbindra Singh share his first-hand experience.


  • Darío Soto Abril, CEO Fairtrade International
  • Will Valverde, Acting Producer Support Manager, Fairtrade Australia New Zealand
  • Parbindra Singh, Chairman of the Fairtrade-certified Lautoka Cane Producers Association, Fiji
