The 2nd Roundtable on Carbon Farming is a follow up of the 1 st Carbon Farming Roundtable, which was held on 9th October 2019 in Brussels. The first Roundtable brought together about 70 policy, scientific and legal experts, who discussed the main elements of Carbon Farming in Europe, with a particular emphasis on result-based mechanisms, i.e. payment schemes where farmers are remunerated based on the carbon benefits they provide through their agricultural practices. During the 2 nd Roundtable, the results of the study “Analytical support for the operationalisation of an EU Carbon Farming Initiative” will be presented. The study, led by COWI and carried out by COWI, Ecologic and the Institute for European Environmental Policy, explored key issues, challenges, trade-offs and design options to develop result-based carbon farming mechanisms, based on the analysis of existing evidence on Carbon Farming initiatives across the EU.
