AGRO ADAPT aims to deliver a service able to anticipate, design, and prepare the ground for autonomous or policy induced climate adaptation in agriculture. The service:

  • enables business operators (e.g. insurers) to anticipate the regional transformations of agricultural market and production, and farm holding structure;
  • makes it possible for regional and national authorities to understand the local and cumulative effects of the farm-level adaptation to climate variability and change on regional economic output (i.e. gross added value, tax proceeds, employment) and underlying natural resource (e.g. water, land) demand.
