AgriAdapt: sustainable adaptation of European farms to climate change

AgriAdapt is a project funded under the LIFE programme of the European Commission. It will demonstrate how sustainable adaptation measures can help livestock, arable and permanent crop farms become more climate resilient.

Context

With increasing mean temperatures and recurring extreme weather events, climate change is now a reality in Europe. Agriculture is particularly vulnerable to its impacts, and farmers are keen to find the best possible ways to adapt to climate change without damage to their economic viability.

Goals

The overall objective of the AgriAdapt project is to demonstrate that three of the most important farming systems in the EU (livestock, arable and permanent crops) will become more climate-resilient through the implementation of feasible and sustainable adaptation measures which also have positive crosscutting environmental benefits. To this end, different measures will be tested in pilot farms across the four main EU Climate Risk Regions and the conclusions obtained will be used to elaborate General proposals for key farming systems.
