The objective of this Call is to support projects that contribute to the development of more sustainable and resilient food and farming systems. This includes consideration of what resources are used and how they are used; reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; and impact on yields, product quality, human nutrition and profitability.
The scope covers both organic and conventional farming and/or food approaches. A holistic systems approach to food and farming systems is encouraged both pre- and post-farm gate. Such an approach could be, for instance, to look at circularity, closing nutrient cycles, utilising side streams, and minimising waste, trying to enhance the efficiency at system level and to improve the use of natural resources.
