13 PROJECT AIMS - 1 Analyse the GMO state-of-the-art in agricultural sector and the problems concerning accidental contamination of productions – through collecting and cataloguing the existing literature; 13 Project Aim 1

14 Map the different aspects of the local situation at a regional level, with informatic (GIS) tools (productions flows, location of critical areas, productions at risk, etc.); 14 Project Aim 2

15 Analyse legal context, paying particular attention to technical- juridical and disputes at law coexistence problems in agriculture; 15 Project Aim 3

16 16 Identifying, monitoring, surveying and controlling tools and methods to be applied on wide areas by public institutions in charge of checking and preventing GMO pollution; Project Aim 4

17 17 Identify general practices, methods and procedures to be used by production, transformation and trading single or associated firms to prevent GMO pollution; Project Aim 5

18 18 Develop and certify GMO-free products Identity Preservation methods and standards for farmers and producers Associations refusing the use of GMO in their production (e.g. Organic farmers); Project Aim 6

19 19 Train up public officers in the use of surveying, monitoring and controlling techniques already identified and tested on field; Project Aim 7

20 20 Train up entrepreneurs in the use of GMO-free products Identity Preservation certified standards ; Project Aim 8

21 21 Constitute an usable on-line permanent database and technical forum to exchange knowledge and experience about coexistence. Disseminate at EU level the obtained technical/operative results. Project Aim 9

22 TASK 1 – MANAGEMENT AND REPORTING TO THE EC 1.1 – Establishment of a working-group 1.2 – Assignment of roles, duties and tasks 1.3 – Internal training 1.4 – GO/NO GO analysis 1.5 – Reporting systems 1.6 – Feasibility study 1.7 – Planning of the managerial, administrative and accounting control, risks analysis, alternative technical plans. 22

23 TASK 2 – STATE-OF-THE-ART ANALISYS ABOUT GMO/NON GMO COEXISTENCE 2.1 – Collecting the existing bibliography (researches, studies, pubblication, comunications, ecc.) about GMO diffusion in agriculture and about problems connected with their coexistence; 2.3 – Analisys of the statistical and distributive data of the agriculture production system and identification of critical areas for coexistence; 2.3 – Data processing on GIS. Results: 1. DATABASE containing the state-of-the-art about GMO/non GMO coexistence; 2. GIS CARTOGRAPHY of the TERRITORY ASSESSMENT 23

24 TASK 3 – ANALYSIS OF LEGAL CONTEXT 3.1 – Collecting both the set of rules at EC, national, regional level, and the technical regulation (proceedings and technical analysis, sampling methods); 3.2 – Conflictual aspects analysis: different regulation levels (EC, national, regional and local); disputes at law; possible solutions; 3.3 – Evaluation standards and methods for damages due to Gmo accidental. Results: 1. IDENTIFICATION of juridical tools for technical-administrative control and for disputes at law resolution; 2. IDENTIFICATION of technics and methods to evaluate economical and environmental damages. 24

25 TASK 4 – WIDE AREA OPERATIVE GMO POLLUTION CHECKING MODELS 4.1 – Map possible sources of Gmo spreading and contaminating material in agrofood chain; 4.2 – Evaluate GMO presence analysis technics and methodologies in agrofood chain and related costs; 4.3 – Evaluate coexistence monitoring technics and methodologies in risk areas and related costs; Results: 1. OPERATIONAL MODELS FOR GMO CONTAMINATION CHECK; 2. OPERATIONAL MONITORING MODELS FOR COEXISTENCE CRITICAL AREAS; 3. ELABORATION OF REGIONAL COEXISTENCE PLAN 25

26 TASK 5 – PROTECTION AGAINST GMO CONTAMINATION AND IDENTITY PRESERVATION METHODS 5.1 – Set up methods for prevention and protection from GMO pollution in farms and no GMO agrifood firms; 5.2 – Set up precautionary methods to be adopted in farms belonging to the GMO supply chains; 5.3 – Costs and cost/effective relation analysis; 5.4 – Certify and recognize Identity Preservation Management Systems. Results: 1. SETTLEMENT OF AN IDENTITY PRESERVATION DISCIPLINARY FOR AGRIFOOD PRODUCTS 2. IDENTIFICATION OF STRUCTURAL NEEDS AT LOCAL LEVEL (logistics, platforms, laboratories, etc.) 26

27 6.1 – Identify coexistence critical homogeneous areas; 6.2 – Inform agrofood system operators in such identified areas; 6.3 – Test identity preservation certification standards and checking methods, with particular attention to cereal and zootechnical supply chains; 6.3 – Systemic (economical, logistical, legal) interaction analisys. Results: 1. METHODS AND STANDARDS FIELD-TEST RESULTS 2. METHODOLOGY CORRECTION AND IMPLEMENTATION 3. INTERACTIONS TESTING (public/private, producer-consumer, economical- environmental) 4. SET UP OF THE REGIONAL INTEGRATED COEXISTENCE PLAN 27 TASK 6 – TESTING ON REPRESENTATIVE SUPPLY CHAINS
