Policy-making and communication
After of the evaluation of 126 pilot farms, the creation of action plans and individual monitoring have led to concrete results for climate adaptation strategies at the farm level.
The purpose of these actions is disseminate the results obtained and show the viability and transferability of the evaluation methodology and the sustainability of adaptation measures to key stakeholders (politicians, farmers and food companies) at the national level and both within like outside the EU.
More than 20 meetings with experts. One of the key aspects of the project has been the communication and transfer of the results obtained to managers and authorities, both nationally and within and outside the EU (FAO).
