Agrisource, a platform to drive solutions for agriculture faced with climate change

Logo Agrisource

 

How can greenhouse gas emissions be mitigated? How can agriculture adapt to climate change while ensuring the resilience of our food systems?

Agrisource aims to federate a collaborative community to generate joint responses to these issues, linked to the conditions in different regions.

Under the concept of innovation, Agrisource integrates the advances in practices achieved by different communities: Climate-Smart Agriculture, agroecology or carbon sequestration initiatives such as  4 per 1000.

The services offered by Agrisource

  • A mapping of projects to achieve concrete solutions,
  • A social network for exchanges of views between professionals,
  • A directory of all the actors involved,
  • A library of documentation relative to ongoing innovations in the areas of attenuation and adaptation to climate change.

An open platform, free of charge

Agrisource is an online open platform that is totally free of charge. Its joint development by INRAE/CIRAD has been funded in the context of the Climate-Smart Agriculture Booster programme by Climate-KIC, the largest public-private partnership working on climate change.

This project is being managed by Suzanne Reynders and Marc Nougier from INRAE and Jean-Baptiste Laurent from CIRAD.

Members and partners: INRAE, CIRAD, IBIMET (Institute of Biometeorology of the National Research Council), WUR (Wageningen University of Research).

Two publications present the results of FACCE-JPI

The Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI) has published its new brochure and a flyer on soil management in the context of climate change mitigation. The brochure presents the achievements and future actions of FACCE-JPI and includes several key interviews. The flyer highlights some of the research projects that are part of the 'FACCE-JPI Multi-Partner Call on Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research'. Both documents were presented at the International Conference on Agricultural GHG Emissions and Food Security organised by GRA and FACCE-JPI in Berlin (10-13 September 2018).

Storing 4 per 1000 carbon in soils: the potential in France

On 13 June 2019, INRA delivered a study commissioned by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) and the Ministry of Agriculture concerning the carbon storage potential of soils in France. Using a novel methodology, the study was able to evaluate this potential by estimating the implementation cost, region by region, in terms of a 4 ‰ goal. The 4 per 1000 Initiative for Food Security and Climate was launched during the UN Climate Change Conference held in Paris in 2015.
