Finish-German project related exchange of scientists (FINGER)

Title: Finish-German project related Exchange of scientists (FINGER); ASSESSING AND ENHANCING THE ADAPTIVE CAPACITY OF AGRIFOOD SYSTEMS TO GLOBAL CHANGE IN EUROPE
Abstract: The research aims to give answers to the following key methodological questions:  what is the meaning of resilience of agrifood systems to climate change and other global changes at different spatial scales and decision levels (from farm to nation); how does the resilience concept relate to diversity and adaptive capacity, how can we assess adaptive capacity, and, can increased diversity enhance resilience and adaptive capacity of agrifood systems?
