Accelerates by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-28 12:49
The ACCELERATES project (Assessing climate change effects on land use and ecosystems: from regional analysis to the european scale) studied the impact of climate change on land use and biological resources in managed ecosystems. It aimed at the integration of existing impact models of agriculture, forestry, species distribution and habitat fragmentation within a common framework, in order to enable impacts to be synthesised across sectors, disciplines and global change problems. Ran from jan. 2001 to june 2004, undre the EU FP5.
Agmemod by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-22 16:21
The AGMEMOD Partnership model is an econometric, dynamic, multi-product partial equilibrium model that allows to make projections and simulations in order to evaluate measures, programmes and policies in agriculture at the European Union (EU) level as well as at the Member States level. The original AGMEMOD Project involved institutes in the EU15 group of Member States. In advance of the accession of the so-called “new” Member States in May 2004 the AG-MEMOD partnership was expanded in 2002 to include research institutes from 8 of the 10 new EU Member States and institutes from 2 of the current Accession States. AGMEMOD is funded under the European Commission 6th Framework (until 2008) and by contributions from the partners institutes throughout the EU.
AgriBMPWater by Baptiste.Hautdidier — last modified 2008-10-22 16:21
Rising concern about agricultural non point water pollution has led to propose many regulatory measures. Best management practices (BMPs), one of the most popular tools, have rarely been assessed in a fully satisfying way yet. The FP5 project AgriBMP Water, that ran from 2000 to 2003, aimed at providing planners with a grid which would allow a comparison between BMPs in terms of environmental efficiency, economic cost and potential acceptability by farmers.
