Although agriculture and food production systems can be one of the key drivers of climate change, they also have the potential to be part of the solution to reverse it.
But being part of this solution needs the support of everyone, and private and public stakeholders can play a key role in this by organising local and regional, multi-stakeholder coalitions to create additional revenue and incentivise farmers to adopt regenerative agricultural practices.
TUI Field to Fork Greece supports farmers on the island of Crete to transition to regenerative agricultural practices with a focus on carbon reduction. It also strengthens existing links and establishes new connections between trained farmers, Food Production Units (FPUs), hotels and a local food retailer on Crete to increase their sales and offer of regenerative agricultural products in the tourism sector and beyond.
Staff in participating FPUs and hotels in Crete and Rhodes are trained on the value of sustainable food and on climate protection in food supply chains.
