The second Thematic Group (TG) meeting discussed approaches that help bioeconomy actors to adopt climate change mitigating practises. Such approaches can include, for example, farm assessment tools to plan farm-level emission reductions, or community level action plans to achieve climate targets within a territory. This one-day meeting also looked into how wider policy support can upscale such approaches.
The meeting was addressed to National Rural Networks, RDP Managing Authorities and stakeholders involved in bioeconomy value chains or local bioeconomy initiatives. It was organised back-to-back with a preceding ENRD LEADER Thematic Lab on Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation.
