Objectives

LIFE C-FARMs project main objectives are linked to:

  • Creating high-resolution demonstrative geospatial information system (GIS-FARMs), which will identify the mitigation potential of the agricultural sector of Lombardy region
 
  • Dovulgative knowledge and data with relevance for the area of interest useful for the creation of the high-resolution demonstrative geospatial information system (GIS-FARMs)
 
  • Identifying information and research gaps
 
  • Supporting the development of a regulatory framework for a carbon certification system in collaboration with relevant stakeholders
 
  • Verify the possibility of use of common methods and/or reference data and/or data sets in partecipation with cimate change research institutions, as well as mutual exchange of knowledge on greenhouse gases from the agricultural sector
 
  • Support in design and implementation of targeted payments for the application of Carbon Farming practice.

Results

LIFE C-FARMs expected results are related to the creation of a methodological and normative framework communally applicable to enable a wider uptake of Carbon Farming practices.

 

LIFE C-FARMs is also linked to the creation of the high-resolution demonstrative geospatial information system (GIS-FARMs), which will identify the mitigation potential of the agricultural sector of the selected region.

Lastly, LIFE C-FARMs wants to develop a regulatory framework for a carbon certification system in relation to carbon farming practices.
