Read EIP-AGRI’s brochure on climate-smart agriculture and learn about solutions for resilient farming and forestry
Farming significantly contributes to climate change with agriculture being responsible for about 10% of greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union. Applying the right farming techniques, such as organic practices, can make a difference.
Focusing on climate-smart agriculture practices, EIP-AGRI released a brochure on solutions for resilient farming and forestry. It highlights several EIP-AGRI Operational Groups and other innovative projects in which farmers and foresters are developing and testing climate-smart practices that address local challenges.
The SOLMACC project is among the initiatives presented by EIP-AGRI that help build a more resilient European agriculture and forestry. It serves as an example for how organic can be part of the solution in transforming food and farming systems and fighting against climate change.
“Strategies for organic and low-input farming to mitigate and adapt to climate change” (SOLMACC) demonstrated that farming can be climate-friendly. Between 2013 and 2018, practitioners successfully implemented a combination of optimised organic farming practices to mitigate and adapt to climate change. IFOAM Organic Europe was the project’s day-to-day coordinator.
