The Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) is a national center of excellence for climate change research, established in 2005 that became a Foundation in 2015. The mission of the CMCC Foundation is to carry out studies and models of the climate system and its interactions with society to ensure reliable, timely, and rigorous results to stimulate sustainable growth, protect the environment and develop science-based adaptation and mitigation policies. The CMCC researchers are engaged in constant research and scientific cooperation at an international scale to advance the knowledge path to mitigate the effects of climate change and to suggest adaptation measures, intervening, where required, with innovative and sustainable strategies.
In the InBestSoil project, the center will analyze the current political situation concerning soil health, develop tools and certification/labeling opportunities, and propose guidelines to introduce the economic aspect of soil health into incentives and policies. Together with another partner (Agris Sardegna – Agenzia per la ricerca in agricoltura), they will be responsible for Living Lab no.1 on Mediterranean agricultural soils.
