Farclimate

MOVING FORWARD TO ACHIEVING CLIMATE-RESILIENT AND SUSTAINABLE EUROPEAN REGIONAL ECONOMIC SYSTEMS

Forestry

Closer-to-nature silviculture (CNS) Management

CNS Labs intends to:

  • Promote native tree species as well as site-adapted nonnative species.
  • Foster natural tree regeneration.
  • Partial harvests and boost structural heterogeneity.
  • Support landscape heterogeneity and functioning.

Fisheries

Resilient to climate change brigades in the fishing sector

The key objectives are:

  • To create brigades to independently act at emergency events beyond FARCLIMATE implementation.
  • To promote resilience and environmental awareness in the marine environment.

Agriculture

Innovations in Climate Resilient Agriculture

The aim is to:

  • Help communities understand climate-related risks in agriculture.
  • Identify where emerging market opportunities exist, taking into account the community needs.
  • Develop plans that are integrated throughout the value chain.

 

About FARCLIMATE

Climate change is the most critical challenge of our time. The impacts of global warming, including droughts, storms, and other extreme weather events, are already being severely felt across the world. Urgent and sustained actions must be taken to both mitigate climate change and adapt to what is already unavoidable. Relevant economic sectors affected by climate change need to be transformed to face the existing risks and develop climate-resilient business models and value chains. Re-skilling opportunities need to be available, and national, regional and local governments must play an active role in the transition to climate resilience.
The FARCLIMATE project aims to implement transformative solutions on the path to climate resilience in at least 20 regions and communities across Europe. It will address the complex challenges of developing and expanding climate-resilient measures, making them available and understandable to everyone, while also paying special attention to the social, political and economic barriers commonly found.

FARCLIMATE and the EU strategy on adaptation to climate change

Smarter adaptation

FARCLIMATE plans to take a multi-faceted approach. We intend to share the findings in various formats accessible to diverse audiences, not just researchers and policymakers. Working with a wide range of case studies and involving stakeholders in every phase will result in a distinct knowledge repository.

Swifter adaptation

We prioritize involving people from various parts of Europe in decision-making, considering their perspectives crucial. Our consortium combines expertise in business, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, and sustainability. This diverse knowledge, coupled with our innovative communication methods, empowers us to create and share effective solutions swiftly, addressing the challenges posed by climate change.

More systemic adaptation

FARCLIMATE will focus on one of the key priorities outlined by the EC, known as Nature-based solutions (NBs). This will follow the 8 criteria detailed in the Global Standard for Nature-based solutions established by the IUCN.

International action

In its international efforts towards climate change adaptation, FARCLIMATE will concentrate on examining the value chains in various regions. This involves evaluating diverse business models and offering information, enhancing skills, and upgrading tools to help companies adapt to the effects of climate change.
