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 project is funded by Climate-KIC’s CSA Booster through the European Institute of Technology. The service i) enables business operators (e.g. insurers) to anticipate the regional transformations of agricultural market and production, and farm holding structure; and ii) 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.
The project is led by the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change (CMCC). Other partners include CNR-IBIMET – Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Istituto di Biometeorologia; INRA – Institut national de la recherche agronomique; and Fondazione Edmund Mach.
