Summary

Diversification has been identified as an important agroecological strategy for rural development. A growing body of evidence suggests that diversification is important for enhancing food and livelihood security, adapting to climate change, and conserving and protecting natural resources. In this paper, we describe strategies used by smallholder coffee farmers in Chiapas, Mexico, to diversify their agricultural production and earnings. We also explore some of the potential outcomes of these strategies in terms of food security and income sufficiency.
