Climate change risk assessment for European agriculture and food security

79.510 € funded by BMBF, PTJ: EU-Joint Programming Initiative: Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change. Knowledge Hub: Economics and trade
Hermann Lotze-Campen

The Knowledge Hub FACCE MACSUR brings together the excellence of research in modelling grasslands, livestock, crops, farms, and agricultural trade in order to illustrate to political decision makers how climate will affect regional farming systems and food production in Europe. To achieve this goal, MACSUR engages in a range of activities, including methodological comparisons of models and use of their outputs (scaling, uncertainty), linking of complementary models from different sectors, involvement of stakeholders, training of young scientists, and establishing a community of practice across a broad range of scientific disciplines.
