Research On Climate-smart Agricultural Practices Has A Primary Role In Sustainable Agriculture


Climate
change’s negative impacts are already being felt on farms,
but the problem also works in reverse as agriculture is a
major part of the climate problem currently generating over
20% of total greenhouse gas emissions.

STARGATE
research project develops a breakthrough, multiscale and
holistic climate-smart agriculture (CSA) methodology,
capitalizing innovations in the field of microclimate and
weather risk management, as well as in the field of
landscape design.

STARGATE is based on earth
observation, weather intelligence and IoT technologies to
support effective farm management and related options for
adaptation to climatic changes, local and regional policy
formulation leading to better landscape
management.

The project implements the Living Lab
approach by connecting research organizations, policy-making
organizations, ICT companies, farmers and other stakeholders
to shape a CSA multi-actor regional framework. Moreover,
STARGATE studies the benefits of applying
agri-environmental-climate technical solutions to achieve
sustainable agricultural development at the field and
landscape level including livestock farming and
agroforestry. STARGATE is leveraging access to these data
and climate-smart decisions tools to foster easy and
affordable adoption by farm management and policymaking
bodies.

Furthermore, STARGATE provides innovative
components for the visualization of big data with an
emphasis on geospatial visualization and dynamic charting.
Additionally, the project has been designed so that its
results may be further developed in other projects, or
adapted to broader contexts, providing opportunities for
influencing policies.

The project is well in symphony
with the required actions to support sustainable
agriculture, and resilient agricultural management and will
run until September 2023 involving 26 partners from Greece,
Czech Republic, Israel, Spain, Latvia, Switzerland, Austria,
Italy, Portugal, Poland, Germany, Norway, and
Belgium.
