The project aims to develop a high-resolution demonstrative geospatial information system that, by gathering relevant information layers (e.g. climate, landscape elements, infrastructure elements, agricultural statistics), will identify the climate change mitigation potential in the agricultural sector of the selected region and support the design and implementation of targeted carbon farming payments. The project is expected to lead to the development of a framework for a carbon certification system in collaboration with relevant actors and institutions, as well as an exchange and information mechanism related to greenhouse gas inventories from the agricultural sector. The geospatial information system developed within this project should enable the support of an incentive mechanism to reward more sustainable management practices such as the 'Carbon Farming' practices described. Finally, the project will identify and implement a regional-scale institutional demonstration framework that should support an initiative to promote 'Carbon Farming' practices, with the aim of linking implementing bodies (e.g. regional CAP administrations in EU Member States) with participating farmers and foresters.
