Climate change affects many sectors. Agriculture is one of the most exposed due to its dependence on weather conditions. This affects everyone in Europe as farmland, woods and forests cover approximately 90% of the EU’s land surface. Climatic variability year-by-year is one of the main causes of variability in crop yields and the inherent risks of farming. Farming is thus in the front line of the battle against climate change impacts.
