Sustainable Agriculture. More than just a transition?

The agricultural sector is both contributing to – and suffering from – global warming. A series of mitigating and adaptation solutions have been developed that are based on e.g., advanced digital tools or regenerative practices. In this paper we review some of the most promising solutions that not only support a transition to more sustainable agriculture but also help European farmers to meet the sustainability targets set out by the EU Green Deal and new CAP. We advocate a systemic approach that includes all stakeholders in the European food value chain, where co-creation with farmers is key to the successful adoption of climate-neutral, resilient and economically-viable farming practices.
