Farming The Future
FARM LIFE project contributes to a climate resilient Europe by developing and demonstrating innovative adaptation technologies and approaches for the transition of conventional agriculture towards climate resilient agroforestry.
Building Rural Networks for Climate-Adaptive Agriculture
The ambition of the FARM LIFE project is to make a tangible contribution to a climate-proof Europe. We take the challenge to facilitate the transition from a landscape with conventional monoculture systems to a resilient landscape with diversified agricultural production systems, such as agroforestry.

The area of action of FARM LIFE is the Netherlands and Belgium.
Three demonstration farm sites are participating in the Dutch province of North Brabant.

To build resilient business networks five replication farm sites are selected for boosting business synergies with the demonstration farmers.
The European Union has clearly identified and set priorities for the rural development in its member states. Addressing the challenges of how to enhance the viability and competitiveness of agriculture while restoring, preserving and enhancing ecosystems requires an integrated approach that would allow an effective transition towards a climate adaptive agriculture in this time of climate change.
