At the moment, project management is a field in development and increasingly used in all economic sectors. Thus, we can specify that the project management plays a major role in order to consolidate a competitive advantage and achieve the organizational performance. In order to achieve long-term goals, it is necessary for the projects to consider several aspects, among which the mode and context of their implementation and the identification of the answers to the needs of the companies and organizations that implement the projects, as well as the follow-up of the measures / recommendations for solving certain problems. Further, in this article we will present the involvement of the project management, as well as funding sources in the field of climate change that may have major implications for agriculture.
