Do you have already aggregated knowledge about the challenges for the agricultural sector and the opportunities which might result from climate change?

The agricultural sector is mainly affected by extreme weather events (e.g. heavy rainfalls, heat waves). Heavy rainfalls cause damage through strong soil erosion and destroy crops. Heat waves induce higher water consumption and can cause crop shortfalls if they last for a long period. Positive effects on agriculture can include increasing crop yields caused by longer lasting growing periods.
