June 2015: Policy workshop with agricultural stakeholders, Brussels.

The workshop was titled: “The Common Agricultural Policy and adaptation to climate change in Europe” and was led by Waginengen University. The workshop brought together a range of key stakeholders and policy makers to discuss detailed scenarios exploring the effects of climate change on European agriculture, to co-examine the current performance of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), and to explore the ways in which the CAP can be improved to better facilitate adaptation to climate change. A key focus for the ECONADAPT project was to advance the role of the economics of climate change in policy appraisal (WP7).

Participants included: EC DG AGRI, EC DG ENV, Fediol, EEB, Ministry of Economics in Netherlands, Ghent University and Free University of Brussels, Faculty of Management and Rural Development in Romania, as well as project partners IIASA, PIK and Bath.
