Working paper on impact of climate change on human, animal and plant health - European Commission

Description

The Commission's 2009 working paper on impact of climate change on human, animal and plant health. Changes in climate impact on the susceptibility of plants to pests and diseases. In addition, warmer summers and shorter winters will in general result in increasing populations of harmful organisms and extension of their geographic range, and will enable new ones to become established in the EU. The crops selected for cultivation will also change in response to climate change, bringing fresh opportunities for pests and diseases. The working paper explains:
•how climate change will affect human, animal and plant health
•what action the EU and its member countries must take in response to these changes
•what tools and financing are already available to tackle the challenges that will arise.
