Since Brussels has pledged to fund sustainability efforts, the question of whether nuclear energy is green or not remains relevant.

Climate Change threatens food security

Climate Change Threatens Food Security

The IPCC report portrays an alarming scenario for the future of our food systems. Food insecurity will be unevenly distributed, hitting the poorest areas of the world more severely. By 2050, large land areas might be degraded, and pollination will be hindered if the temperature continues rising. Regenerative Agriculture can be a useful ally in the transition of our food system. The support of this holistic cultural approach to agriculture would contribute to restoring climate stability, increasing biodiversity, rebuilding soil fertility, and producing healthy food. RegAgri4Europe is a two-year project financed by the Erasmus+ Programme.

It is, therefore, critical for DSOs to develop functional and outage management systems, as avoiding fault is something that the DSOs can benefit from significantly, both in terms of cost-efficiency and customer satisfaction.
