The impact of extreme climate events on agriculture production in the EU
This study examines how the experienced and projected increase of extreme weather and climate events throughout the EU territory impacts the agricultural production in the EU, hence triggering adaptive solutions by the sector and possible policy responses to make agriculture more climate-resilient.
It provides an overview of the impacts of extreme weather events that can be associated with climate change and available solutions for the agricultural sector.
It also examines to which extent the actual policy instruments pro-actively support the adaptation of the agricultural sector, both at EU and national levels and provides best practice examples drawn from case studies on how to further contain the adverse effects of climate change for agriculture.
