What is FACCE-JPI?

The Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI) brings together 24 countries who are committed to building an integrated European Research Area addressing the interconnected challenges of sustainable agriculture, food security and impacts of climate change.
FACCE-JPI provides and steers research to support sustainable agricultural production and economic growth, to contribute to a European bio-based economy, while maintaining and restoring ecosystem services under current and future climate change.

It aims to do so with a strong transdisciplinary research base, encompassing economic and social aspects in addition to scientific ones, and with a creative approach towards the alignment of national programmes and the input of multiple actors and stakeholders.
The integrated FACCE-JPI strategic research agenda defines 5 core research themes:
1• Sustainable food security under climate change, based on an integrated food systems perspective: modeling, benchmarking and policy research perspective
2• Environmentally sustainable growth and intensification of agricultural systems under current and future climate and resource availability
3• Assessing and reducing trade-offs between food production, biodiversity and ecosystem services
4• Adaptation to climate change throughout the whole food chain, including market repercussions
5• Greenhouse gas mitigation: nitrous oxide and methane mitigation in the agriculture and forestry sector, carbon sequestration, fossil fuel substitution and mitigating GHG emissions induced by indirect land use change
These core research themes are gradually taken into account by national research agendas in view of aligning national programmes where much research is already undertaken, and inspire pilot joint actions on topics where research is lacking.
An implementation plan was launched in the Summer 2015, setting out short-term and mid-term priority actions to implement the FACCE-JPI strategic research agenda, in coherence with the Work-Programme of Horizon 2020.

In 2016 saw an update to the original Strategic Research Agenda named "FACCE-JPI in brief". This update refreshed the original five Core Themes, reframing them around new, more impact-driven research priorities.

The permanent governance was adopted at the Governing Board meeting, held February 9, 2012 in Paris. The management structure consists of a Governing Board, a Scientific Advisory Board, a Stakeholder Advisory Board and a Secretariat.The permanent governance and management structure can be consulted.
