Giacomo coordinates a Landscape Enterprise Network (LENs) project in Northern Italy. He liaises with donors, supplier aggregators, farmers and other stakeholders within the region. Aside from that, Giacomo also oversees the introduction of regenerative agriculture practices into conventional cereals and vineyard farms.
I believe that strengthening linkages between commercial agriculture and ecological sound practices are key to promoting environmental and economically sustainable supply chains while ensuring food security. I am delighted to have the opportunity to bring together global companies and local farmers to promote sustainable farming practices.
Under the LENs programme in Italy, Giacomo liaises with the different partners and stakeholders involved in the programme. He functions as a bridge between Preferred by Nature and what is going on the ground, Giacomo also reviews the technical aspects of the measures while providing support to farmers as they fulfill proposals to be submitted for tender.
