EIGER-Ag has two objectives:
1.    To enhance the knowledge of and data available on land suitability and yield of key agricultural raw materials under climate change conditions.
2.    To serve as a pilot project for using spatially-referenced data sets to assist decision making and to improve environmental risk assessments.
