Climate Farm Demo project is supported by 60 partners 28 countries all in the pedo-climatic areas.
A European-wide network of pilot farmers implementing and demonstrating climate-smart solutions for a carbon-neutral Europe
Climate Farm Demo will strengthen European farmers’ capacities to implement, demonstrate and uptake Climate Smart Farming (CSF) practices across the EU and reduce their GHG emissions by 35% during the project life thus achieving the EU 2030 Climate Target Plan.
Therefore, Climate Farm Demo overall aims to first (1) network Pilot-Demo-Farmers (PDFs) to boost climate smart farming knowledge exchange and cross fertilisation among agricultural sectors and EU and national Agriculture Knowledge and Innovation Systems (AKIS), then (2) support and advise Pilot-Demo-Farmers in implementing and demonstrating the Climate Smart Farming practices to increase innovation uptake and finally, (3) to incentivise the adoption of Climate Smart Farming practices across Europe thanks to standardized methodologies and relevant rewarding mechanisms that will support farmers in their systemic transition. To achieve its aim, the project will pursue the following sub-objectives
