Assessing climate change adaptation and mitigation options: The regional and policy dimension
Tromsø – Trondheim, Norway
on board of the Hurtigruten Coastal Express
9-12 October 2016
Aims and objective
It is well established that Europe will face considerable regional differences with regard to climate change. This requires the regional dimension of climate change for a spatially diverse European agriculture to be better understood. Studies of policies that enhance resilience in the food sector and that formulate policy recommendations have to take into account the spatial nature of agriculture and the regional dimension of climate change. The workshop will focus on applications and methodological advancements.
The eventhasthreemajor goals:
(i) to discuss adaptation and mitigation options of agricultural systems under climate change
(ii) to study and assess regional approaches implementing adaptation and mitigation options in agriculture
(iii) to advance policy implications of climate change for agriculture and food security
