Impact of climate change and climate extremes on the Agriculture and Forestry in the Europe-Russia-Turkey Region

The ongoing climate change has widespread and consequential impacts all over the world including increasing frequency and intensity of extreme climate and weather events. Despite positive impacts in some regions of Europe, Russia and Turkey, future warming will create multiple risks for natural and economic systems, in particular for agriculture and forestry sectors. Decision-makers and stakeholders are interested in a comprehensive, scientifically based assessment of the consequences of observed and future climate change, therefore the main goal of the AFTER project is impact assessment of climate changes and climate extremes on agriculture and forestry in the Europe-Russia-Turkey Region.
