New paper about Climate Change impacts on water resources for agriculture

In many regions in Europe, climate change impacts on water resources are threatening the sustainability of agricultural systems and recent events have demonstrated that drought episodes typically for Southern European countries are expanding to Eastern and Western Europe. Policies and legislation are needed to mitigate the related risks and to adapt to climate change impacts. This work presents a simplified water accounting framework that allows a standardized climate change assessment procedures across multiple river basins and synthesize information on local impacts to inform European policy making strategies. The full paper is available open access HERE, and the water accounting framework is also included in the IMPREX POLICY BRIEF available HERE.
