Transition to sustainable agriculture and forestry practices

METHODOLOGY

WORK PLAN

Work package 1 – Green nudges landscape analysis

WP1 will review existing evidence on green nudging interventions that have been used to promote more sustainable farming and forestry systems and investigate behavioural factors that could influence farmers and foresters’ decision to engage in sustainable practices and behaviours. Furthermore, WP1 will identify farmer and forester segments for the promotion of sustainable practices and design, implement and monitor the co-creation activities based on the participation of multiple value chain stakeholders and shape, create, and manage the UCs that will represent different agriculture and forestry value chains.
