Setting The Foundations For Carbon Farming
C arbonica is a 4-year project that aims to introduce Carbon Farming techniques in the widening countries of Greece, North Macedonia and Cyprus. The Project will establish the Carbonica Excellence Hub with the intent of bringing together civil society, the economy, research communities and governance from across the participating countries in order to introduce Carbon Farming to the regions and bring into focus the plethora of benefits that it entails. The scope of Carbonica is to acclimate the three (3) national ecosystems to the advantages of accepting and employing Carbon Farming practices, to educate professionals of the agro-food industry, to come up with a joint research effort for the regions and to introduce innovative business models that the agrofood sector can effectually employ.
The Partnership consists of organisations, private entities and institutions from across the spectrum, maximising the efficacy and potency of the implementation effort and ensuring that the CEH will successfully instigate Carbon Farming in the three countries.
