Project description

‘MERINOVA’ deals with risks associated with extreme weather phenomena and with risks of biological origin such as pests and diseases. The major objectives of the proposed project are to characterise extreme meteorological events, assess the impact on Belgian agro-ecosystems, characterize their vulnerability and resilience to these events, and explore innovative adaptation options to agricultural risk management.
