Final SOLMACC Conference
|16 May 2018 - Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU, Rue Montoyer 21, Brussels|
|Agriculture is a sector that on the one hand contributes to climate change, yet on the other hand, it is deeply impacted by climate change effects. Due to this duality, it is key for farmers and other agriculture actors to work together and find long-lasting, systemic solutions that will lead to greater mitigation as well as adaption to climate change. |
During this half-day conference, the willingness of organic farmers to be part of the solution in fighting climate change will be highlighted, the potential of mitigating and adapting to climate change of 4 key farming practices will be presented, and policy recommendations will be discussed. To this end, the final results of the SOLMACC project will be showcased.
