Centrale onderzoeksvraag/doelThe ERA-Net Cofund FOSC (Food Systems and Climate) is implemented within the framework of FACCE-JPI, the European Joint Programming Initiative focusing on agriculture, food security and climate change, the Belmont Forum, and the ERA-Net Cofund LEAP-Agri.
ERA-Net Cofund Food Systems and Climate
Centrale onderzoeksvraag/doelIndividual farmers are coached to take measures that will make their farming more climate resilient and climate friendly.OnderzoeksaanpakWe are developing a climate trajectory that consists of a climate scan and a climate course for a number of companies from three sectors (dairy farming, potato farming and pig farming).
Climate actions with economic potential on farm
Central reseach question/goal
In CLIMASOMA we investigate what the existing scientific literature can teach us about the role of soil management on hydrological and biological soil functions and the resilience of crop production to climate change within specific pedo-climatic contexts.
Climate adaptation through soil and crop management: synthesis and the way forward
Climate mitigation and adaptation
Agriculture is subject to climate change, and also contributes to it. Climate is thus an important challenge.
ILVO IS COMMITTED TO:
Climate resolution (2016)
There is a near-global consensus that all sectors must urgently enact measures to meet oncoming effects of climate change through mitigation, adaptation and spatial planning. In terms of agriculture, Flemish policy meshes seamlessly with that thinking and also expresses an explicit desire.
Climate is a big challenge for agriculture, policy and research.
Climate change is one of the top challenges for policy, business and research. The agricultural sector is both subject to climate change and contributes to it.
Precision Crop Farming (PCF) Precision Crop Farming (PCF) focuses on technology that enables farmers to grow crops more efficiently and eco-friendly, while taking the variability of the soil, crop and climate into account. The data processing algorithms and models offer support during the decision making process and to create ‘task maps’.
ISMAR has world-class research capacities in polar, oceanic and Mediterranean regions, focusing on the evolution of oceans and their continental margins; influence of climate change, acidification, bio-geochemical cycles and marine productivity; submarine habitats and ecology, and the increasing pollution of coastal and deep-sea environments; the natural
It is the largest specialized European laboratory with core research areas within atmospheric composition, climate change, air quality, and environmental contaminants.
The conservation of carbon in peat soils is important for climate change mitigation. The Interreg NWE CarbonConnects project aims to conserve or increase carbon stocks in peat or wet soils by raising ground water levels, growing aquatic plants and capturing carbon in biomass.
