Climate Change Impact on Emerging Risks in the Food Chain - EFSA Virtual Meeting
: 8 Oct 2020
Sector: Food & Beverage
Climate change is a relevant driver of emerging risks. While a broad range of forward-looking studies and reports examine the impact of climate change on food security, future challenges for food and feed safety, plant and animal health and nutritional quality are usually not investigated in depth.
EFSA recently completed the CLEFSA (CLimate change and Emerging risks for Food SAfety) project for developing and testing new methodologies for the identification, characterisation and analysis of emerging risks linked with climate change. A report on the project was published on 25 June 2020.
The CLEFSA project has contributed to the identification and characterisation of the overall interacting effects of climate change, highlighting the uncertainty in the current understanding of how climate change affects the areas in EFSA’s remit. Given the complexity and interdisciplinarity of the subject, we would like to engage and cooperate with a wide variety of stakeholders on this issue.
Objectives of the meeting
The virtual info session aims to:
- Disseminate the CLEFSA report to a wider audience.
