CONSOLE project, focuses on promoting the delivery of Agri-Environmental Climate Public Goods (AECPGs) by agriculture and forestry through the development of improving contractual solutions (that is, the relationships between the public administration (at different scales) and the farmers).

The general objective of CONSOLE is to boost innovation in the lasting delivery of AECPGs by EU agriculture and forestry, by building a Community of Practice (CoP), by designing and testing effective and efficient cooperation models and by developing a contractual framework supporting implementation by multiple actors…

Work Packages


The WP1 aim is the development of the AECPG contractual framework, including model contracts, which is at the core of the project, through a deep involvement of the relevant CoP (supported by WP5). The WP is organised in such a way as to collect input from other WPs and to incorporate them step by step in the framework, in a process of co-constructed knowledge accumulation and operationalization.


WP2 provides an inventory and an ex-post qualitative assessment of existing and/or implemented contract solutions for the improved delivery of AECPGs in the EU and in third countries. In close collaboration with WP1, existing initiatives, with special emphasis on environmental-related land tenure systems, result-based approaches and approaches of collective implementation, as well as value chain solutions, will be identified and analysed in order to detect potentials for improvement to be studied during the project.


WP3 will ensure the acceptability, preferences and likely behaviour by farmers and others potential actors involved in in innovative AECPGs contracts will be investigated through a collection of secondary data and surveys in the selected areas/countries. The results of WP activities will be further evaluated, validated and synthetized through a series of local workshops.


Contract solutions envisaged in WP1 will be modelled using “bio) economic simulation models and integrated models, building on selected cases from WP2 and empirical information from WP2 and 3. Modelling will allow to overcome the limitations of the real-life experience on the most innovative contract, to enable the transfer of insights on mechanisms and governance issues across case studies


The main objective of WP5 is to build a CoP around the project and to ensure its feedback and shared contribution to the development of the framework, as well as engaging it through training actions and animation in a collaborative framework with all relevant stakeholders. This will be achieved in collaboration with WP6 and using the most suitable technology.


WP6 will provide complementary dissemination and outreach in a collaborative framework with all relevant stakeholders and interaction with all other WPs (particularly with WP1 and WP5), in order to include a comprehensive communication strategy, particularly aimed to boost the impact of the project; including a set of specific goals and objectives with respect to what knowledge and results shall be disseminated, to whom, how and when.


The WP7 aim is the coordination and monitoring of the activities, the administrative and financial management, the coordination of the reporting and deliverables production, the management of the knowledge generated in order to facilitate the exploitation and dissemination activities (WP5 and WP6), and the resolution of possible conflicts.


The research activity envisaged in the project CONSOLE will be conducted applying fundamental ethical principles and relevant national, EU and international legislation, including the Charter of Fundamental Rights
of the European Union and the European Convention on Human Rights, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR – Regulation UE 2016/679).

Case studies

To give adequate consideration to this feature, the process will build on selected case study areas and experiences all over Europe. Case studies will provide a local in-depth analysis of the research question, as well as a national and EU-wide coverage for the potential of the proposed solutions.


CONSOLE project is based on the mobilization of 24 institutions, covering a broad range of actors (farmers, organizations, researchers, public administration, consultant companies, …
