Agriculture contributes to numerous issues that cause environmental degradation, but it is also increasingly viewed as a way to achieve carbon neutrality.
The direct and widespread impact of agricultural practices on the carbon cycle and the amount of carbon captured in soils is well recognised.
Several policy frameworks that focus on higher climate ambitions provide incentives for agricultural management practices to support emissions reduction.

Farmers and producers are being pressured for greater accountability and the need to demonstrate a lower environmental impact of their practices.
Technologically advanced services involving Earth Observation (EO) data can support these actors in changing towards more sustainable farming. Targeting concrete needs and connecting them with the carbon credit market would make it easier and more profitable for farmers to lead this change.
In this partner event, organized as a 1-hour webinar, we will present ongoing developments of the Horizon2020 project AgriCaptureCO2. We will have a closer look at the opportunities and challenges of using satellite-based monitoring as a means to optimise resource use at a farm level, to speed up the roll-out of carbon farming and the generation of carbon credits.
Who should attend?
A must see for farmers to see how they can generate carbon credits
Policy makers can find out about carbon farming best practices and ensuring integrity
Companies, service providers, researchers can hear more about how we use Earth Observation data to drive progress on digitalisation, scalability and carbon farming
Presentations will be followed by a live Q&A with the audience
