Description of the Initiative (in less than 10 lines), including, as appropriate elements on size and
scale of the initiative:
To identify the most effective agricultural mitigation measures, the project
gave birth to a software tool, called ACCT (AgriClimateChange Tool) that
evaluates energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and carbon
storage at farm level. ACCT has been continuously improved throughout the
project thanks to its use in the four countries. 149 farms were assessed with
ACCT representing more than 20 different production systems.
Taking into account the assessment results, specific action plans were
developed and implemented aiming at reducing energy consumption and
GHG emissions of the farms by 10 to 40%.
The results and lessons obtained through the project led to the drafting of
global mitigation proposals for the EU, National and Regional policy
measures, especially in the context of the new Common Agricultural Policy
(CAP).
The project also included various communication and awareness-raising
activities in order to reach key stakeholders such as farmers, Farmer Unions,
professional associations or consumers.
