The Global Research Alliance is very pleased to welcome the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE_JPI) on board as a Partner.
FACCE-JPI provides and steers research to support sustainable agricultural production and economic growth, to contribute to a European bio-based economy, while maintaining and restoring ecosystem services under current and future climate change.
Both the GRA and FACCE-JPI aim to enhance information exchange, cooperation, programme alignment and mutual learning of best practices in research programming. Expected collaborative activities include for example the development of joint research projects, programmes or actions, participation of FACCE-JPI representatives in GRA Flagship Projects, exchange on research methods and data sets and cooperation in the dissemination and valorisation of scientific results.
FACCE-JPI and the GRA have already cooperated successfully on several issues:
- FACCE-JPI launched a Multi-partner Call on GHG Mitigation, with 3 GRA countries (USA, New Zealand, Canada) in January 2013
- The Secretariats of both initiatives have held ongoing discussions on possible cooperation in soil-related research (in coordination with the 4/1000 research initiative)
- The Secretariats of both initiatives have shared good practices and approaches for international scientific cooperation.
- The GRA is represents on the FACCE-JPI Stakeholder Advisory Board.
Out of the 46 GRA members, 15 are also members/associated members in FACCE-JPI.
The latest version of the GRA’s Livestock Research Group newsletter is now available.
This edition has articles on:
* Our work with countries in South and South East Asia to support their development of livestock GHG inventories
* New research guidelines from our Feed and Nutrition Network on conducting in vitro experiments
* A preview of the upcoming GRA Council meeting
* Engagement with the IPCC on livestock GHG issues
* Highlights from CCAFS (the CGIAR’s Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security), one of our major partners

Of particular interest to GRA Members who submitted proposals or who participate in both the GRA and FACCE-JPI, in this newsletter the FACCE-JPI notes that the ERA-Gas call for transnational research projects on monitoring & mitigation of GHGs from agri- and silvi-culture generated 28 pre-proposals with 169 partners. Evaluations will be available 14 October 2016.
The FACCE-JPI comprises 22 countries committed to building an integrated European Research Area addressing the interconnected challenges of sustainable agriculture, food security and impacts of climate change. Research is steered to support sustainable agricultural production and economic growth and contribute to a European bio-based economy, while maintaining and restoring ecosystem services under current and future climate change.
