Community of practice coordinators’ workshop in the field of climate smart agriculture organized in Constanta

Ovidius University of Constanta (OUC), through the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (FSNSA), has recently hosted the fourth Steering and Evaluation Committee’s meeting and the community of practice coordinators’ workshop in the field of climate smart agriculture, as partner in the AGREEN Project – “Cross-Border Alliance for Climate-Smart and Green Agriculture in the Black Sea Basin” (Contract No. BSB 1135).

The workshop was organized in a hybrid system (in situ and online), informs the project director from Ovidius University of Constanta, Professor Liliana Panaitescu, PhD. Its purpose was to plan future activities, including field visits to Bulgaria, Turkey and Georgia to analyse and monitor the evolution of experimental crops, and a conference which aims to involve agricultural companies in the project and the establishment of an alliance to support climate-smart agriculture.

According to the quoted source, “another activity with a major impact will be the development of a training course on ” Entrepreneurship for Climate-Smart Agriculture in the Black Sea Basin”, which will be initially offered to three young multipliers from each project partner country (Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia and Greece), after which they will have the task to further present the course through national events”. The training will address topics such as the concept of climate-smart agriculture (CSA), climate-resilient agro-food value chains, managing sustainable farms, financing CSA activities, marketing of sustainable agricultural products, international trade and cooperation. In the future, the aim is to integrate this course into tertiary and higher education programs in the partner countries.
