Climate Change Adaption is Key to Avoid Disruption of EU Agricultural Commodities Imports

  • An EEA study projects the impact on agriculture due to climate change in Europe and the rest of the world. The effects are slated to be felt on cultivation conditions, trade, production, regional markets and prices. 
  • The study utilizes information on global climate change impacts, the EU’s import profile and evidence of products’ vulnerability to climate change, to analyze the effects on Europe’s agricultural trade.
