Abstract: The article refers to work carried out in the framework of the CAPRESE-SOIL (CArbon PREservation and SEquestration in agricultural soils) project.It discusses how Good Agricultural and Enviromental Condition (GAEC) has introduced farming practices beneficial for the improvement of the soil organic carbon stocks. In fact since 2005, as part of cross compliance, farmers have to keep their agricultural land in GAEC by complying with a number of minimum requirements in issues such as the prevention of soil erosion, the conservation of soil organic matter and structure, a minimum level of maintenance of habitats and the protection and management of water. The implementation of GAEC is a process where Member States play a decisive role as the European legislative framework gives them flexibility to define the precise content of a GAEC minimum requirement taking into account local conditions. No objective specifically linked to climate change was included in GAEC by the legislation implemented since 2005. Anyway some management practices, which have the potential to stabilise or enhance SOC levels and soil carbon stocks, have been introduced in the requirements defined by the Member States in the framework of GAEC and have become compulsory for farmers since then.
