INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR APPLIED SYSTEMS ANALYSIS - 2013 - Analysis of possible climate change impacts on agriculture and food security in Ukraine using GLOBIOM model. Introduction Climate change adds another challenge to the world food system – a system that is supposed to feed everybody while ensuring the sustainable management of natural resources.
Is mankind adequately prepared to face this challenge? Climate change impacts on agricultural systems will vary between countries and regions. Increased heat waves and lower precipitation level, as predicted by climate change modelers, may shock the production of major world grain producers. Many scientists consider that impacts on Ukrainian agriculture may not be as disastrous as in other countries.
Methodology We used IIASA's GLOBIOM model to analyze climate change impacts on agriculture and the dynamic recursive procedure for downscaling and harmonization of data. Results The index of gross agricultural production in 2011 has increased by 82.6% compared to the 1990 level. Conclusions. Climatic Change - May 2013 - Consequences of climate change for the soil climate in Central Europe and the central plains of the.
This study aims to evaluate soil climate quantitatively under present and projected climatic conditions across Central Europe (12.1°–18.9° E and 46.8°–51.1° N) and the U.S.
Central Plains (90°–104° W and 37°–49° N), with a special focus on soil temperature, hydric regime, drought risk and potential productivity (assessed as a period suitable for crop growth). The analysis was completed for the baselines (1961–1990 for Europe and 1985–2005 for the U.S.) and time horizons of 2025, 2050 and 2100 based on the outputs of three global circulation models using two levels of climate sensitivity. The results indicate that the soil climate (soil temperature and hydric soil regimes) will change dramatically in both regions, with significant consequences for soil genesis. However, the predicted changes of the pathways are very uncertain because of the range of future climate systems predicted by climate models.

ESA JOURNAL - DEC 2013 - Climatic turning point for beech and oak under climate change in Central Europe. PUBLIC SERVICE EUROPE 18/10/12 Climate change brings exotic viruses to Europe. Special report: Several exotic mosquitoes have been making advances onto European soil and with them they often bring diseases that have been unknown in Europe before their arrival – the latest discovery is named the Usutu virus and was discovered in central Germany At the end of August 2012, during an extensive blood sample test, the Usutu virus was found in one of the blood samples from a donor in Hessen, Germany.
The Usutu virus is relatively new to the European Union as it is mostly found in Africa. It is extremely rare that the Usutu virus has been found in a blood sample of a person, as infection is not common in Europe. These kinds of exotic viruses are more often entering Europe given the effects of climate change, which is making it a more attractive feeding and breeding ground for these mosquitoes. This discovery has been made by virologist Dr Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit from the Bernhard-Nocht-Institut for Tropical Medicine in Hamburg. MAAPRAT/CEP 04/01/12 Commerce agricole et changement climatique. Cette note du Centre du commerce international (CCI, organe hybride entre l'OMC et l'ONU) aborde la question du changement climatique (CC) en agriculture sous un angle original : celui du commerce international des produits agricoles.
En réponse aux enjeux posés dans les pays en développement (PED), le CCI prône la libéralisation des échanges : "déployer des efforts concertés pour libéraliser les échanges dans le cadre de règles contribuerait non seulement à réduire les émissions d’origine agricole, mais améliorerait aussi la sécurité alimentaire en lissant les disparités régionales en matière d’accès à l’alimentation". La question de l'atténuation est traitée sous l'angle des émissions agricoles et du transport des produits, deux secteurs pour lesquels la mise en place de politiques climatiques se heurte à des difficultés importantes.
