Baltic Agrifuture; Climate adapted agriculture – Baltic Agrifuture

The Baltic Agrifuture project focus on water management solutions in agriculture. The project addresses the need for more cooperation across the borders in the Baltic Sea region to deal with the effects of climate change.

The Baltic Agrifuture states that the effect of climate change is not only the fact that it is getting warmer. In northern Europe, it is expected that higher temperature will lead to more precipitation and evaporation, and longer crop seasons. The risk for heavy rainfall is also expected to rise. In other words, in agriculture there is a risk for both drought and flooding.

In view of this, the project wants to work on finding solutions to climate challenges in the Baltic Sea region. The project aims to identify new and innovative methods for water management by sharing knowledge and experiences. The partners come from different sectors, at the local, regional and national level. The activities include making a list of possible solutions to specific challenges in relation to water management and identifying best practices.
