FACCE-JPI adopted a new European and International Strategy to address the global challenges of sustainable agriculture and food security in the face of climate change in a more effective way.
Members of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI) adopted a new European/International Strategy (2016-2020) in December 2015. The European and International Strategy aims to:
- Promote greater complementarity and structuring of research at European and international levels to address global challenges in a more effective way;
- Improve the international visibility FACCE-JPI and enhance the impact of aligned European research on European policymaking and innovation; and
- Facilitate the exchange of information and mutual learning with similar research initiatives in other regions of the world.
A presentation of the Strategy is available here
More specific annual Action Plans will be developed by the FACCE-JPI Secretariat to facilitate and prioritise the roll-out of this Strategy in the context of the FACCE-JPI Implementation Plans .
FACCE-JPI is a Partner of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural GHG since January 2017.
