A number of certification schemes act as a buyer-driven mechanism that economically, socially, and environmentally influences smallholder farmers in coffee sector. Theoretically, certifications convince the consumers to give a high value to social and environmental characteristic attached to coffee product. As consumers are willing to pay price premium for the certified coffee, the coffee growers receive higher financial benefits from the trade of the product. However, realities are far more complex and we still have limited knowledge ensuring the actual effects of certification. The debates about the impacts of certification on the livelihood of smallholder farmers are still ongoing. Empirical studies vary widely in their results, from positive to modest to negative.
