As part of the Networking activities, the CHIMERA team participated on 23 June 2022 in the webinar “Ecosystem services and environmental footprint in agriculture” of the European LIFE AGRESTIC project. During the webinar, various aspects related to ecosystem services have been analyzed that belong to four categories: supply (such as food production), regulation (such as climate regulation), life support (such as nutrient cycle), and values cultural. With an overview from the payment to the perception of the value of ecosystem services, various case studies from different sectors have been presented by Agrestic, analyzing the environmental footprint of the product and the main categories of impact. The “LIFE AGRESTIC – Reduction of Agricultural Gases EmiSions Through Innovative Cropping systems” project, which is part of the broader climate change mitigation objective of the LIFE Program for the Environment and Climate Change 2014-2020 (funded by the Eu), promotes the adoption of innovative and efficient cropping systems, with a high potential for climate change mitigation, and contribute to the dissemination of innovative visions and tools for a more efficient and climate-friendly agriculture. “LIFE AGRESTIC” aims at promoting the adoption by European farmers of innovative and efficient cropping systems, based on the use of legumes and catch crops able to mitigate the effects of climate change.
