Climate Smart Agriculture Booster

The CSA Booster brings together an ecosystem of partners to identify, assess, demonstrate and implement CSA solutions at scale. It aims to be the leading platform in promoting innovation and investment in CSA technologies, accelerating and scaling the adoption of CSA solutions and facilitating the transition to a climate smart agricultural sector across Europe and beyond.

Our Vision
The CSA Booster envisions an European agricultural sector that:

  • will contribute significantly to climate change mitigation by reducing GHG emissions and securing or enhancing carbon sequestration;
  • is adaptive and more resilient to climate change while maintaining high productivity;
  • can positively impact agricultural sectors across regions in and beyond Europe.

Our Mission
The CSA Booster (CSAb) aims to be one of the leading players in promoting innovation, accelerating the adoption of CSA solutions and facilitating the transition to a climate smart agriculture sector across Europe and beyond.

Our Strategy
To achieve its mission, the CSA Booster will bring together an ecosystem of partners to identify, assess, demonstrate and implement CSA solutions at scale. To promote innovation, it will create an open innovation platform, including a community of practice and regional hubs, to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and lessons learnt, scalable tools and services. The learnings and expertise gained will be used to influence and improve policies at the local, regional and European levels.

The CSA Booster will focus on prioritised and other relevant value chains. It will seek and leverage funding beyond Climate-KIC for its activities, especially to de-risk implementation of innovative CSA solutions at scale. It will develop into a self sustainable organisation in 3-5 years.
