Coping with climate change: crisis funds and carbon farming

Over the past few weeks, all eyes have been on France where farmers are scrambling to save their crops after a catastrophic frost swept through the country in what French agriculture minister Julien Denormandie has called “probably the greatest agronomic disaster of the early 21st century”. 

Besides warming the vulnerable crops, the rows of fires lining France’s hills have thrown light on the fact that climate change is very much no longer tomorrow’s problem.

But what is the agricultural sector doing to cope with the coming climate crises? What exactly is carbon farming, and how can it contribute to the adaptation and mitigation of climate change in the sector? And what support is on offer for the sector which faces the full brunt of climate change? EURACTIV takes a closer look in this video reportage.
