Agriculture in the Mediterranean and Sub-Saharan Africa is increasingly a challenging sector that’s shaped by climate change. TRUSTFARM will use Climate-Smart Farm Practices (CSFPs) that cope with climate change. Core challenges in the case studies will be identified by their climate impact variability on food security.
In cooperation with stakeholders, TRUSTFARM will develop Multi-Stakeholder Innovation Platforms (MIPs) to prioritise and select the best-fit innovative CSFPs for each case study. A toolbox of innovative pathways will be developed that contains the following:
TRUSTFARM will design integrated agro-ecosystems based on the selected pathways with on-farm trials. The environmental and economic impacts of the designed systems will be assessed using Life Cycle Analysis.
To increase and diversify farmers’ income, two business models will be developed:
TRUSTFARM will select one or both business models according to the needs of each case study with the stakeholders through the MIPs.
