This factsheet includes ideas and examples resulting from the 2nd meeting of ENRD's Thematic Group on Carbon Farming (TG). It explored the challenges and opportunities involved with upscaling carbon farming in the EU, and presented key factors that would increase farmers’ motivation to engage with carbon farming and enhance actors’ knowledge about which carbon farming practices would be most adequate for them. The group also identified policy challenges associated with taking action in these areas.
