EU climate hazard hotspots: more frequent, more intense and more co-occuring

Bioeconomies can help slowing down climate change but – as the central topic in this project – farmers, supply chains, households and governments may become more exposed to the impact of climate extremes on the supply and prices of food and non-food biobased products. Already, agricultural and food commodities have been reported to become more susceptible to climate extremes, in particular to droughts, floods and wild fires. Impacts of extreme events include lower crop yields, seed losses, insect infestation, storm damage and deterioration of soil organic content,  among others.
