EIT Climate-KIC - Service for local and economy wide assessment of adaptation actions in agriculture

EIT Climate-KIC


TIMEFRAME: October 2016-December 2017

COORDINATOR: Alessandro Gretter (P.I.)

DESCRIPTION: 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.

Pilot regions in the project are located in Mediterannean Basin, including also Trentino.
