Policy-making and communication
The obtained results will be disseminated and transferred to key political, agricultural environmental and food-industry stakeholders, such as farmers, farmers associations, consultants/technicians, NGO or public administrations. An essential aspect of the project is to communicate and transfer the conclusions to relevant decision makers and authorities at national level, EU level and beyond (e.g. FAO). Other foreseen activities include demonstration workshops on pilot farms, expert workshops, webinars, short videos portraying farmers involved in the project or the elaboration of a Manual on farming and adaptation.
