CEEweb’s main objective is to integrate the concept of sustainability into agricultural policies and practices, as well as into the rural development policy, in the European Union and CEE countries. We do so with the aim to maintain and enhance biodiversity on farmlands and in rural areas.
Intensification and unsustainable farming practices pose a major threat to the ecological status of farmlands, while climate change-related risks further increase the vulnerability of not only food production, but also that of rural communities.
Through our work, we aim to contribute to improved agricultural policies and promote nature- and climate-friendly farming practices that effectively build on a sustainable, agroecological approach in food production. We believe that sustainable agriculture — based on healthy soils, resource efficiency, and diversity — can play an integral role in climate change mitigation.
