Ten research projects on monitoring and mitigating greenhouse gases from agri- and silvi-culture have been selected to receive funding from the FACCE ERA-GAS Co-fund. The projects fall within the scientific scope of the call for proposals, which is divided in the following four research themes:

1) Improving national GHG inventories and monitoring, reporting, and verification of emissions

2) Refining and facilitating the implementation of GHG mitigation technologies

3) State-of-the-art production systems that are profitable and improve food and forest biomass production while reducing GHG emissions

4) Assessment of policy and economic measures to support emissions reductions across the farm-to- fork and forest-to consumer chain

On 4 March 2016 FACCE ERA-GAS launched this co-funded call for transnational research projects on monitoring and mitigation of greenhouse gases from agri- and silvi-culture, in Europe and New Zealand. The call closed on 19 December 2016. In May 2017, following peer review evaluation by a panel of international experts, ten projects were selected. The projects will receive funding from partners from 13 European countries and New-Zealand, with co-funding from the European Commission. The total requested funding is 14.123.000 euro. The evaluation outcomes have been communicated to the project coordinators on 18 May 2017. The projects are expected to start from August 2017.
