    Livestock food systems largely contribute to the overall food systems’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and are thus put at the centre of global policy and research agendas on mitigation and adaptation. An additional growing concern on the prevalence of globalised animal product value chains and the specialisation of agricultural markets and their environmental pressures over supply networks further adds to this debate.

    Citizen's juries (CJs) are a form of deliberative democracy that can help promote public participation in decision-making processes. CJs are typically described as a randomly selected group of people, which are gathered to represent a microcosm of their respective communities. Typically, over the course of one to six full days (depending on the scope and complexity of the issue at hand), the jurors meet to learn and discuss public policy issues. Led by a neutral moderator, these proceedings are informed by invited experts on the policy issue at hand.

    Decision making in agriculture has been based on general (blanket) recommendations made by technicians, the farmer's own knowledge or local practices that are adopted as customary for generations. Recognizing the need to generate information to help make site-specific decisions based on traditional agronomic research, this study uses Machine Learning (ML) models and a Global Harmony Search (GHS) methodology to find an optimal solution to the combination of practices that a farmer could implement according to his soil and climate conditions specific to his land.

    In Colombia, NATURE+ works in the southwest departments of Caquetá, Cauca, Nariño, Putumayo and Valle del Cauca with a focus on two landscapes: lowlands and highlands. These areas have high deforestation rates, at-risk Indigenous populations and latent security risks. However, communities, governments and researchers have recognized the departments’ importance for water and agrobiodiversity conservation,
    and are beginning to embrace nature-positive activities to improve the natural environment and the lives of the people who depend on
