The Black Baza Coffee experience emerged from research and thinking on market-based incentives and certifications for sustainable agriculture, with a strong desire to build an alternative to extractive value chains that have exploited smallholder producers and nature alike. The five year journey has enabled a collective 'moving the needle' on how smallholder producers might engage with markets and in this process allowed for a unique position through which to engage with larger systems such as the state, market and society. This talk draws on the Black Baza experience to engage with questions of community-based biodiversity conservation, sustainability, and the future of the Western Ghats.
