Adapting to climate change: EU agriculture and forestry (2010)

Description

The report establishes the challenge to be faced in the sector of climate change adaptation, before going on to explore how EU agricultural and other policies can assist agriculture and forestry to adapt in the medium to long term. Understanding the future which agriculture and forestry will face is a complex task: farms and forests are not just sources of food or timber, but also land areas of wider environmental and social significance; the impacts of climate change on farms and forests will vary widely, across the EU and within individual Member States; and knowledge about those impacts and about effective adaptation responses needs to be improved and shared more widely.
