CLIMATE - SOIL - BALTIC SEA - BIODIVERSITY

Projects

Carbon Action platform brings together and conducts scientific research to enhance soil carbon sequestration and improve climate impacts of agriculture. The platform contains multiple research projects and a multi-disciplinary network of researchers.

JÄRKI and the Carbon Action farmer collaboration

Baltic Sea Action Group’s JÄRKI project has been working actively to promote sustainable agriculture since 2009. In 2019 Louise and Göran Ehrnrooth Foundation and the Sophie von Julinin’s Foundation granted the third 5-year funding for JÄRKI and the collaboration with carbon farmers.

TWINWIN project

The Nessling Foundation finances the Carbon Action project platform’s research on how biodiversity impacts the ability of fields to store carbon. In addition to scientific research, the emphasis is on creating impact.

AGROFORESTRY project

"The potential of trees to mitigate climate change in northern arable lands" studies agroforestry as a tool to mitigate climate change and agroforestry's effects on crop yields.

SOIL AMENDMENTS project

The project ”Effects of organic soil amendments on soil and root microbes” studies how wood derived soil amendments affect microbes in agricultural soil and in oat roots. The project is funded by Maj and Tor Nessling Foundation.

Carbon Action Svenskfinland project

Carbon Action Svenskfinland -project expands the Carbon Action platform to the Swedish-speaking region of Finland. The project is funded by SLC, Jordfonden and Svenska Kulturfonden.

INAR RI Agriculture project

The INAR RI Agriculture project, funded by the Academy of Finland and coordinated by the University of Helsinki, investigates the greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration capacity of northern agricultural lands.

LIFE CarbonFarmingScheme

LIFE CarbonFarmingScheme -project aims to put forth concepts to incentivize climate action and carbon sequestration by farmers and foresters. More specifically, the project outlines the preconditions and opportunities to implement novel incentives which combine EU climate objectives, voluntary carbon markets and agriculture and forestry policies and would accelerate carbon sequestration in European agriculture and forestry. The project receives funding from the European Union LIFE programme.
