    International partners

FACCE-JPI works with a number of European initiatives and projects (public to public, public-private partnerships), including ERA-NETs and other JPIs.

The aim with these collaborations is not only to take forward the research and alignment goals of FACCE-JPI, but also to support the European Research Area, increase the impact of FACCE-JPI on European policy-making and innovation, and facilitate exchange of information and mutual learning with other initiatives.

At the international level, FACCE-JPI recognises the necessity to work with selected global partners in order to help better structure research at the global level, raise FACCE-JPI's visibility and impact worldwide, and promote information-sharing with similar programmes undertaken in other regions (e.g. Africa, Mediterrenean area).

FACCE-JPI adopted a new European and International Strategy to address the global challenges of sustainable agriculture and food security in the face of climate change in a more effective way.

Members of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE-JPI) adopted a new European/International Strategy (2016-2020) in December 2015. The European and International Strategy aims to:

  • Promote greater complementarity and structuring of research at European and international levels to address global challenges in a more effective way

  • Improve the international visibility FACCE-JPI and enhance the impact of aligned European research on European policy making and innovation

  • Facilitate the exchange of information and mutual learning with similar research initiatives in other regions of the world

More specific annual Action Plans will be developed by the FACCE-JPI Secretariat to facilitate and prioritise the roll-out of this Strategy in the context of the FACCE-JPI Implementation Plans.

FACCE-JPI is a Partner of the Global Research Alliance (GRA) on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases since January 2017.
