Cross-Border Alliance for Climate-Smart and Green Agriculture in the Black Sea Basin (AGREEN)


AGREEN builds upon the concept of Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA), an approach informing integrated actions towards the transformation of agricultural systems, supporting innovation and ensuring food security in a changing climate. The project’s mission is to “bring coherence within the actions taken against climate change and restore environmental stability, economic and food security for generations to come”.

A specific objective is to design a common brand of agricultural products originating from the Black Sea Basin and deliver them in a climat-smart way. To that end, the project partners conducted feasibility study of the state-of-the-art and the potential of the climate-smart agriculture in the project countries and studied the specifics of the national contexts as well as the preferences and attitudes of the consumers.

Expected results of the project include:

  • increase agricultural productivity and income;
  • mitigation of emissions;
  • enhance adaptation and resilience to climate change.

Project partners are based in Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia and Greece.
