Workshop: Insights and lessons learned from CONSOLE case studies

Workshop: New instruments for the provisions of public goods by agriculture and forestry: insights from the CONSOLE project.

Lessons learned from over 60 case studies

19th of October 2020 10:00-12:00


We investigated 60 promising examples of contract solutions, which implement result- based, cooperation, land lease and value chain approaches to improve the provision of public goods by agriculture and forestry. Our case studies stem from 13 EU countries and consider 14 different agri-environmental-climate public goods. In the workshop we will present the findings and lessons learned gained from these exemplary cases. We would like to discuss with you potential barriers and success factors, as well as options for enhanced uptake of such solutions.


1) To present and discuss lessons learned from over 60 case studies with practitioners, stakeholders and scientists.
2) To collect recommendations and experiences from participants.
Venue: online.
The link to the video platform will be shared with the registered persons some days ahead of the event.
