Outline:
1-FACCE-JPI remit and
governance
2- Implementing the FACCE
Strategic Research Agenda (SRA)

1- FACCE-JPI remit: great


challenges and governance

A perfect storm
Major global challenges: we have to face the realities ahead of us

The public research agenda will be key to whether our food production
system will be able to master the transition to a sustainable model of
production under the new scarcities expected within the next two decades!

A "perfect storm" of food shortages, scarce water and insufficient


energy resources threaten to unleash public unrest, cross-border
conflicts and mass migration as people flee from the worstaffected regions.

Prof. John Beddington, UK Chief Scientific Adviser

European and global


challenge

Food Security
The looming crisis
Global shortage of food, water and energy
- global wheat stocks at lowest since 1970s
- price spikes, food riots in 2007-08
Stock to use ratio, % of all grains and oilseeds

Source: Thirtle, unpublished

Food price rises in 2007/08


Some causes
Low global stocks
Increased demand: biofuels
Harvest failures
Future drivers
Increased cost of fuel/ fertiliser
Lack of agriculture R&D
investment
Climate change
Population and income growth
Biofuels

Two Goals of Our Time


1.

Achieving Food Security


1 billion hungry
Food production to increase 70% by 2050
Adaptation to Climate Change and dwindling natural
resources critical

2.

Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change

2 degree goal requires major emission cuts

Agriculture and Land use = 30% of emissions...

...and needs to be part of the solution

New and strong emphasis on agricultural research is vital for


sustainable global development

Joint Programming
Addressing major societal challenges that cannot be
solved solely on the national level, and allowing
Member States to participate in those joint
initiatives where it seems useful for them (voluntary
participation with variable geometry)
Benefits of research are not optimised due to
compartmentalisation of public research funding in
the EU
Aligning national programmes to minimise
duplications, bring critical mass, best use limited
financial resources
Identify national priorities and provide coherence
between Member States

A three stage process


1.Development of a Common Vision with long term
objectives
How cooperation and coordination of research at EU level
can address the combined challenges of food security
against the continuous threat represented by various
scenarios of climate change, global population growth and
food / non-food demand
2.Translate it into a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA)
Establishing medium to long-term research needs and
objectives in the area of food security through adaptation to
and mitigation of climate change in agriculture
3.SRA implementation
identifying and exchanging information; joint foresight and
technology assessment; joint research activities/modalities;
infrastructure; EU/global aspects; public-private
partnerships; needs of consumers and industry

2- Implementing the FACCE


Strategic Research Agenda
(SRA)

Strategic Research Agenda


Launched December 5, 2012
Based on Scientific Research Agenda
One integrated document taking into account:
Vision paper
Stakeholder Consultation
Meetings with funders and scientists: Mapping meetings
Workshop with ERA-NETs
Detailed discussions of core themes: SAB + invited experts
Foresight (SCAR)
Inputs of GB and Advisory Boards

5 core research themes with short-, medium- and


long-term actions
Available

5 core-themes:
1 Sustainable food security under climate change, based on an integrated
food systems perspective: modelling, benchmarking and policy research
perspective
2 Environmentally sustainable growth and intensification of agricultural
systems under current and future climate and resource availability
3 Assessing and reducing trade-offs between food production, biodiversity
and ecosystem services
4 Adaptation to climate change throughout the whole food chain, including
market repercussions
5 Greenhouse gas mitigation: nitrous oxide and methane mitigation in the
agriculture and forestry sector, carbon sequestration, fossil fuel substitution
and mitigating GHG emissions induced by indirect land use change

Towards Implementation
of the SRA (1) : Joint Actions
Pilot Action: MACSUR (CT1)
International Call on GHG Mitigation (with USA,
Canada, New Zealand) (CT5): launched January
28th 2013
ERANET Plus on Climate Smart Agriculture:
Adaption of Agricultural Systems in Europe (CT4)
International call with the Belmont Forum on
Food Security and Land Use Change (CT1) :
launch foreseen July 2013
Possible Joint call with ERA-Net BiodivERsA on
Agriculture and Biodiversity (CT3)

Towards Implementation
of the SRA (2) :
Creation of an Ad Hoc Working Group on Alignment
-> Outputs: 4 alignment categories
Creation of an Ad Hoc Working Group on ERA-Nets
and Horizon2020
Creation of an Ad Hoc Working Group on
Implementation -> Outputs: topics submitted to the
EC for 1st work programme of H2020
Alignment and Implementation Working Groups
meeting (May 28th):
Implementation Plan (2013-2015) to be adopted
in June

Method for establishing an Implementation plan:


Alignment categories
-

A cross-cutting approach between:


Short-term priorities in each core theme

National programmes, mapped and


distributed within alignment categories

Much research/all or many countries Alignment, e.g. through


Knowledge Hubs
Avoid duplication, create critical mass, data and model
sharing
2. Some research/ some countries Alignment at thematic or
geographic level
Enhance regional or thematic clusters, capacity building
3. Lack of research New calls (H2020, ERA-NETs, new
transnational calls)
Strengthen European research effort, create synergy
4. Emerging research topics Ideas lab, workshops
