    The objective of the ResAlliance is to facilitate information and knowledge flow and increase the awareness, understanding and capacity of farmers and foresters on landscape resilience in Mediterranean countries. More specifically, ResAlliance will gather and assess knowledge and practice needs, gaps, barriers, solutions and good practices to achieve resilient landscapes, with special emphasis on measures against hazards caused by climate change. It will also prepare and facilitate stakeholder engagement through interactive and innovative participation methods. It will finally transfer the knowledge and activate regional landscape resilience governance, with special emphasis in five Mediterranean regions. ResAlliance will create and animate a Mediterranean thematic network on landscape resilience (“LandNet”) for forestry and agriculture. The LandNet will continuously identify, engage and grow new cooperation and networks to access, improve and increase the knowledge of solutions and good practices. The LandNet will prepare the context-specific knowledge and engage and train farmers, foresters and other key stakeholders for knowledge transfer of managerial, technological, financial or governance solutions. The work programme will allow capturing and interpreting most urgent needs while identifying and coupling unknown best practices in research and practice with these needs; compiling a comprehensive description of the state of current farming and forestry practices on landscape resilience to summarise and explain the added-value, the relevance and the cost/benefit aspects of the practices collected, avoiding duplication; delivering an extensive range of useful, applicable, appealing and easy-to-access material in many formats, including EIP-AGRI, EU FarmBook and existing dissemination channels most consulted by farmers and foresters in the countries; and building synergies with OGs and innovation groups from EIP-AGRI, and implement multi-actor approach.

    The main goal of the CREDIBLE project is to build momentum and trust for the implementation of carbon farming in the EU. This will be primarily achieved by setting up and moderating a network of initiatives/projects/stakeholders (referred to here as the Network of Networks - NoN) for favouring transparency, environmental integrity, and methodology standardisation in soil carbon accounting. Such a NoN will be responsible for pushing forward multiple discussions (articulated around three main themes: which practises; what standards; how to monitor) and is expected to evolve from a mostly technical/scientific network at the onset of the project, into a process catalysing policy making and business innovation toward its end. The transparent, open access, multi actor dialogues required to build trust and co-create solutions will be orchestrated around three annual European Carbon Farming Summits, which will present opportunities for the NoN to interact with the broader stakeholder community and grow to the point it would attract further fundings for long term sustainability. Through the action, four specific objectives will be achieved: O1) to build and disseminate a practical toolbox for promoting carbon farming, capable of taking into account local land uses, best practices, and multi-actor interests; O2) to identify options for benchmarking and selecting standards, certification mechanisms, and policy instruments for carbon farming; O3) to favour the establishment of a network of soil carbon data collectors and repositories to improve measuring and monitoring carbon dynamics; O4) to build up processes and tools to drive conversations for the upscaling of carbon farming. CREDIBLE’s ambition is to support the European Commission and the Expert Group on Carbon Removal in the identification and upscale of solutions for soil carbon farming.

  • Funder: European Commission Project Code: 101059794
    Overall Budget: 3,679,060 EURFunder Contribution: 3,667,140 EUR

    Agroforestery (AF) has already proven its potential for farm sustainability, climate change mitigation & adaptation, biodiversity preservation, and soil conservation. However, AF performances are context-dependent, and many barriers hinder its adoption, such as lack of tools for decision-making, assessing economic, environmental, social benefits, and monitoring of policies and their impact on AF. DigitAF will boost AF implementation in the EU and beyond thanks to the co-development of digital tools tailored to the needs and concerns of DigitAF target groups. To engage actors whose decisions impact AF implementation,DigitAF will: (1) Support policy-actors at various scales to design more efficient policies supporting AF adoption & carbon farming; (2) Provide tools helping practitioners (farmers…) deal with the complexity of AF systems. DigitAF will allow them to optimize the design and management of agroforestry systems at field and farm scale; (3) Enhance capacities of actors to assess, quantify and market the economic, environmental and social performance and benefits of AF. The end-user centred multi-actor approach of DigitAF will be made possible by implementing 6 living labs (LL) in Italy, Germany, Netherland, United Kingdom, Finland and the Czech Republic. Open-source tools will be co-developed thanks to the existing or novel practical knowledge, scientific evidence and models. They will be tested with the end-users from LL and improved thanks to their feedback. Larger dissemination to target groups will be ensured through DigitAF partners gathering members and networks across EU. DigitAF consortium brings together 25 partners from 20 countries from the EU, Associated Countries and beyond, composed of RTOs (9), universities (5), SMEs (6), European and international organisations (4), NGO and cooperative (1). DigitAF consortium and the LL cover all AF value chain actors, thus efficiently supporting AF implementation in the EU.
