Roundtable 3 (October 14, 900 – 1230 h)


Ana iglesias universidad polit cnica de madrid spain eastagri annual meeting 2010

1 key issue can agricultural investment coexist with climate change policies?

2 challenges

  • Speak a common language (prioritise reasons for concern)

  • Improve dialogue between science, policy and society (define how, lessons from EU initiatives, measures that make sense today and in the future)

    (academic point of vies, some thoughts and some examples)


Ana iglesias universidad polit cnica de madrid spain eastagri annual meeting 2010

Reasons for concern

Financial crisis, terror, inequality, degradation of the environment, …

Common element: global issues, what happens in one place has an influence on what happens in another place


Ana iglesias universidad polit cnica de madrid spain eastagri annual meeting 2010

Food importers are buying agricultural land of poor countries

Defining the baseline is difficult


Ana iglesias universidad polit cnica de madrid spain eastagri annual meeting 2010

High risk, highly certain

Medium risk, some uncertainty

Possible opportunity,

if management is adequate

“The adaptation gap” Can optimal management decrease vulnerability to climate?


Example 1 changes in land productivity iglesias et al 2007 2010

We do not know how our world would be like in the future

Complexity: need to understand local vulnerabilities

What might a low GHG diet look like?(Source: T. Garnett, 2009)

  • Not overeating

  • Much less meat and dairy

  • Seasonal field grown foods

  • Not eating certain foods

  • Reducing dependence on cold chain

  • Wasting less

  • Efficient cooking

  • Redefining quality


Ana iglesias universidad polit cnica de madrid spain eastagri annual meeting 2010

6 Evaluation criteria

  • Mitigation potential

  • Externalities

  • Barriers to implementation (tech., ec., social)

  • Interest to farmers

  • May be included in CAP?

  • Incentives?

6 Measures with high mitigation potential

  • Catch crops

  • Reduced tillage

  • Use crop residues

  • Optimising fertiliser use

  • Increase wood crops

  • Optimal pasture renewal

Axis 1

  • Farm modernization

  • Restoring & prevention

  • Farm advisory services

  • Training

    Axis 2

  • Agri-env measures

  • Payments linked to WFD

    Axis 3

  • Diversification into non-agricultural activities

Example 4: Evaluation (and valuation) of policy action (Iglesias et al., 2010)

HadCM3/HIRHAMB2 scenario, 2071-2100, (% yield change)

(1) Emphasis on water resources protection and urban development

(2) Farm adaptation without policy support (private)

(3) Emphasis on agricultural production and rural development


Ana iglesias universidad polit cnica de madrid spain eastagri annual meeting 2010

Reasons for concern when we think about climate change

Consequences are too unequal

Uncertainty

Deciding on the solutions that are appropriate (the how issue)
