Resumen

SOLETO POLANCO, Iván Tlaloc  y  CRUZ-MORALES, Juana. Who Benefits from Organic Coffee Certifications? The Case of Peasants from La Sepultura, Chiapas. Rev. pueblos front. digit. [online]. 2017, vol.12, n.23, pp.126-148. ISSN 1870-4115.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22201/cimsur.18704115e.2017.23.290.

This research aims to assess whether participation in organic certification schemes is a successful tool to bring small-scale producers from the South out of poverty through improving their livelihood and reducing their vulnerability. The research methodology consists of an extensive revision of the related literature, as well as a case study. Findings demonstrate that producers continue being the weakest link in the value chain, as happens in the commercial chains of conventional coffee, and are therefore not obtaining the expected benefits.

Palabras llave : sustainable livelihood; vulnerability; value chains; coffee leaf rust; NGO.
