Which are the consequences of climate change in genetic biodiversity? How can local varieties and breeds help in future food production? Can the use of local plant varieties allow agricultural systems to better adapt? Could autochthonous breeds improve climate change mitigation strategies?
The speakers of the webinar “The role of rural biodiversity in climate change”, professors Bebeli Penelope and Bizelis Iosif, gave their answers to these questions on Wednesday, 27/01/21 via zoom and in live stream on facebook.com/Clicha.erasmusplus. Students and scientists participated in the online event.
In the framework of the Erasmus+ project “Climate Change in Agriculture” (CLICHA), an online session on “Marine Pollution and Ecotoxicology” was held for the students at the National Institute of Agronomy of Tunisia (INAT- University of Carthage) on Wednesday, 9 December 2020. It dealt with general aspects of marine pollution and its impacts and was delivered by Prof Manos Dassenakis of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
In the framework of the project CLICHA (Erasmus+) a Videoconference has been presented by Prof. Dimitris Bendos (University of West Attica, Athens, on December 7th 2020 during the course “Groundwater contamination” at the HigherSchool of Engineers of Medjez El Bab (ESIM).
The CLICHA social media were presented at the 5th Steering Committee Meeting of the FOSTEX project. The aim was to attract interest on the project and initiate collaboration opportunities. In particular, the possibility to co-organise a common webinar on the subject of Climate Change and the production of natural raw materials for the textile sector was discussed.
On February 27, 2020, the 5th Business forum of the CLICLA project took place @ Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies in Jelgava. The audience had the opportunity to get to know the project and get familiar with “Land management and agricultural practices for reducing greenhouse gas and ammonia emissions” by attending a series of speeches on the subject. In particular, the Latvian Ministry of Agriculture informed the participants of the policy measures taken to reduce climate and ammonia emission in agriculture with the LLU acting as scientific advisor in this effort. Great food for thought!
