Deliverable 1.1. Review of the definition of the existing ecological approaches

New deliverable available: D1.1. Review of the definition of the existing ecological approaches

A new LIFT project’s deliverable in the form of a public report is available for download: D1.1. Review of the definition of the existing ecological approaches.

The report has been prepared by the partners from: JRC (Belgium), SRUC (United Kingdom), UNIBO (Italy), UBO (Germany), INRA (France).

The aim of this Deliverable (D1.1) is to lay the foundation for the development of a framework for farm typologies, which takes into account existing typologies and existing nomenclature (e.g. low-input, organic, extensive, high nature value farming, conservation agriculture, agroecological, etc.) when considering in particular the degree to which farms adopt ecological practices.

A literature review was conducted to identify existing categorisations of farm types based on the degree of uptake of ecological approaches and practises to farming. The review involved a detailed search of three databases (Web of Science-WoS Core Collections; Scopus; CAB Direct).
