AGRO ADAPT Climate KIC – Service for local and economy wide assessment of adaptation actions in agriculture

AGRO ADAPT offers a service able to anticipate, design and prepare the ground for autonomous or policy induced climate adaptation in agriculture. The service relies on original, innovative and timely research produced by members of the Consortium to assess the economic repercussions of adaptation actions to the changing frequency and intensity of droughts and floods in Europe –at a local, regional and supra-regional level. End users targeted by the service include public agents, notably regional administrations, environmental agencies and river basin authorities; and business operators, notably insurance companies.

General aims

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.
