Joint Call on Food Security and Land Use Change

Understanding the dynamic interactions between food security and land use change, a challenge confronting nearly all continents and of paramount interest to policy-making, science and society, requires a global strategic approach and cooperation between national research programmes. To this end, the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE – JPI) together with the Belmont Forum launched a Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on Wednesday July 17th, 2013. The call brings together Cyprus, Ireland, Israel, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Romania, France, the UK, Australia, Brazil, India, Japan, South Africa and the USA.

Food Security is a global challenge which can only be tackled with an international approach. Today, about one billion people do not have access to sufficient calories. This imbalance will only increase in time, as the global world population is expected to rise to 9 billion by 2050 while natural resources continue to diminish. Current methods of producing food impact on the environment, with significant local degradation of soils, water resources and biodiversity in many parts of the world. Land use change, occurring worldwide due to human development dynamics, is arguably the most significant driver of environmental change including loss of biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions, soil degradation and alteration of hydrological cycles. The need to produce more food, animal feed, fibre and biofuels, as well as the need to use land for conservation or recreation will impose growing pressure on already scarce land resources to sustain ecosystem health and services. Such pressures will be exacerbated by the impacts of climate change.

This Collaborative Research Action focuses on the two-way interactions between the dynamics of food systems and land use change, including the implications of the change on biodiversity and ecosystem services. This call offered two types of projects: Type 1 projects promote the building of interdisciplinary communities/networks that effectively engage relevant stakeholder groups. Type 2 projects build on established networks which are ready to embark on large-scale projects (3 – 5 years and up to EUR 3 million). FACCE-JPI countries have earmarked EUR € 5.25 million for FACCE countries researchers to participate in Type 1 and 2 research projects. Projects with FACCE partners have to be in compliance with the FACCE countries’ goals and eligibility rules. A successful proposal will combine significant contributions by scientists from at least three of the participating countries, including at least one Belmont Forum country which is not a member of FACCE-JPI.

All necessary information is available on the Belmont Forum dedicated website.
