About the Project

Moving ForwARd to achieving CLIMATE-resilient and sustainable European regional economic systems

About the project:

FARCLIMATE will address the difficult challenges of developing and expanding climate-resilient measures, making them available and understandable to everyone, while also paying special attention to the social, political and economic barriers that are commonly found. FARCLIMATE actions will be implemented in at least 20 regions and communities, i.e., case studies, in Europe, where we will address transformative solutions in the path to climate resilience. In order to achieve such a great challenge, FARCLIMATE has set the
following work program:

  • Initial work on engaging with all relevant stakeholders in each region, setting management mechanism;
  • Establishment of Living Labs to perform co-creation, testing and scaling-up innovative activities in real-life environments;
  • A deep research of the main value chains, of the socioeconomic and environmental characteristics and of the existing economic sectors, through indicators to be monitored, of all investigated regions and communities;
  • Establishment of the transversal actions to be performed in all case studies: tailor-made training activities for communities empowerment, targeting different types of stakeholders and based among climate change and related hazards and risks;
  • The implementation of technical but also socially feasible innovative solutions in the agriculture, forestry and fisheries economic sectors, with specific solutions to increase their capacity to adapt to climate change impacts on their fields. Nature-based solutions will be the guiding thread in FARCLIMATE innovative actions;
  • The creation of different tools to spread the obtained learnings, found barriers, successful results, among others, during FARCLIMATE, such as policy recommendation, guidelines, management plans and the innovative Transformation Hub

Our Contribution

NOVA IMS leads the Consumer Behaviour and Empowerment assessment task to understand the relevant factors that influence consumers’ acceptance/behaviour and change behaviour. Namely, the analysis of factors that influence the decision process towards the transition of climate resilience solutions, including the consumer’s capabilities. Data will be collected from different European countries and will be analyzed using structural equation modelling techniques.
