Priorities and funded actions

* Topic 1: Water management
– Low-cost, lean solutions for enhancing irrigation efficiency of smallholder farmers; 

* Topic 2: Farming systems
– Redesign agro-livelihood systems to ensure resilience;

* Topic 3: Agrofood chain
– New optimized models of Agri-food supply chain systems offering fair price for consumers and reasonable profit share for producers

* Topic 1:
– SDG 6.4.1 Change in water-use efficiency over time;
– Number and efficiency performance of new irrigation technologies to achieve optimal crop yields, while ensuring water safety and security (water quality and quantity);
– Strengthening capacities of small-scale farmers to support transition towards the use of more efficient and effective irrigation options;
– Establishment of possible synergies with public authorities, as well as non-governmental actors (NGOs, private sector), to create the necessary policy/regulatory framework to support small-holder farming;
– Increase profitability of irrigation as an economic activity which can generate sustainable income for local farmers and help recover equipment costs, while decreasing use of resource inputs use (less water used to grow more higher-value crops) to preserve environmental sustainability

* Topic 2:
– SDG 2.4.1 Proportion of agricultural area under productive and sustainable agriculture
– Systems redesigned to minimize the risk of failure associated with yield losses due to inappropriate farming systems (e.g. monoculture) and climate change, and secure the incomes of the farmers;
– Adoption of environmentally, socially and economically sustainable agroecosystems productions;
– New organizations facilitating learning and coordination among actors, between farmers and along the value chain;
– Increased efficiency of the use of natural resources (water);
– Increased soil fertility by the proposed farming systems;
– Increased income and satisfaction by the farmers;
– Yield stability and quality in comparison to standard farming systems under challenging environmental conditions

* Topic 3:
– SDG 2.3.1 Volume of production per labour unit by classes of farming/pastoral/forestry enterprise size;
– New technology tools and business models for access to market, suited to local clusters and SMEs, and creation of a new generations of young entrepreneurs;
– New insights in the competitiveness of local clusters of farmers, small manufacturers and distributors, with integrated innovative planning and institutional solutions for sustainability and profitability;
– New options to increase the added value of products from local clusters;
– Transparencies in fair trade and shortening Agri-food chain beneficial for smallholders;
– Verified consumer feedback on quality and safety of products from small holders, locally produced or obtained in inter-Mediterranean country trade

Among financed action
* Basic and applied research;
* Technology development and integration;
* Testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment;
* Collaborative research;
* Demonstration or pilot activities

Additional information

– Be part of a consortium of at least three legal entities

* The action muste take place in an eligible country
