Exploring low carbon emission solutions in agriculture

Bringing together public authorities, research institutes and farmers to explore low carbon emission production models in agriculture.

Project summary: 

Agriculture can have a negative impact on the environment and climate change. In order to minimise these impacts it is necessary to coordinate the actions of advisory services, the administration and farmers for investment into innovative, low-emission technology and production models. 

This technical assistance project financed the organisation of four seminars and study visits to explore the possibilities offered by low-emission technological solutions in agriculture.

Project results: 

Four seminars were organised and complemented by field visits.

The project allowed a specialised expert team to be created whose skills are currently used by the ministry of agriculture, advisory services, local administration and farmers.

The research institutions that participated in the project set up a research cooperation based on LCA estimation of low-carbon technologies in agriculture and livestock production.

Participating farmers gained knowledge that will influence their practices through low carbon innovations which in the long term will contribute to the environmental and climate protection.
