The Summer School brings together the excellence of research in climatology, geography, ecology, landscape and resource management, nutrition, sociology, agricultural policy and economics. It will serve as a platform of education and knowledge transfer, interaction among disciplines, communication and collaboration between students and renowned scientists.

 

Through a combination of interdisciplinary keynote plenary lectures, workshops, public lectures and excursions we will learn and discuss about


  • climate change impacts on regional farming systems
  • emergent risks, opportunities and adaptation
  • food security and sustainable food production
  • agricultural policy and economy
  • climate models and crop modelling

Climate Change Impacts on Food Systems

Human induced climate change poses challenges to social, economic and environmental systems, their interactions and thus to food, water and health security. The four pillars of food security, availability (production and trade), access to food, stability of food supplies and food utilisation, are strongly linked to climate change. Activities associated with food production and distribution are as well major sources of climate forcing. Agriculture is the main water consumer and key activity for the rural population of the Mediterranean Basin. Every step in the agro-food supply chain is affected by climate change, either directly like farmers, or indirectly like food processors and distributors networks. Climate change will attune the entire food value chain, its operators and the end consumers.

Sustainable and Resilient Agro-Food Systems

The Mediterranean region and its population are increasingly exposed to extreme weather events, economic and food crises, epidemics, social instability and political conflicts. Mediterranean agro-food systems must meet the future challenges of providing a growing and urbanised population with changing dietary needs while reducing the environmental impact of the agro-food chain activities. There is a need to develop resilient and sustainable food systems that can cope with unexpected shocks and ensure a food-safe future. As detailled in the Zero Hunger Challenge, sustainable food systems provide food security and nutrition for all in a way that does not compromise the economic, social and environmental foundations for creating food security and nutrition for future generations. The impacts of climate change require sustainable and climate-friendly agricultural practices, including through diversifying production.

Modelling the Impacts of Climate Change

Agricultural land pressure, food security risks, water scarcity, environmental sustainability and the need to adapt to climate change require modelling of the impacts of climate change on crop production for planning, strategic and tactical decision-making purposes. Process-based plant simulation models are essential for any climate impact assessment for the agricultural sector. These models are primary scientific tools used to quantify the economic risk for crop production, to demonstrate the yield variability by soil texture and climate conditions and to investigate possible adaptation strategies.
