Regional Case Studies
The purpose of the Regional CaseStudies is a simultaneous and interlinked development of a common conceptual framework of actual models and model links to assist policy makers and actors in the agri-food chain in identifying effective and efficient adaptation and mitigation measures and potential consequence scenarios, e.g. impact on food yield, quality, nutritive value, disease load etc. in perceived hotspots of climate impacts. The studies are geared to answer the question "what would be the different contributions of different European adaptation strategies to global food security until 2050 at different scales (farm to EU) while keeping the GHG targets? What investments are necessary? What are the implications?"
Three Regional Pilot Studies in Northern Savo (Finland), Mostviertel (Austria), and Oristano (Sardinia, Italy) were selected in 2013 as most advanced showcases to represent the farming systems in northern, central and southern Europe. For compatibility with international research networks AgMIP and ISIMIP the Regional Pilot Studies are asked to apply the new Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (especially SSP2 "continuation" but also SSP3 "fragmentation") in conjunction with the Representative CO2 Concentration Pathway of 8.5 W/m2 (most similar to the SRES A2 emission scenario of the earlier IPCC reports).
