Climate change will reduce imports of agricultural products to the EU by 40%

An international team of scientists has found that since 2050, 40% of agricultural products, which

shipped to the EU, will be very vulnerable to drought andmay die. In a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers speculate that changes affecting agricultural products will be caused by global warming.

Scientists noted that as the planet warmsdue to greenhouse gas emissions, their colleagues around the world are trying to predict what will happen to plants and animals in their region. Research has shown that as the planet warms, some areas may experience dry weather - with less rainfall in Vietnam, Brazil, India, Turkey and Indonesia. The drought will drastically change the economies of countries and will also affect the EU countries that depend on agricultural imports.

To make the calculations more correct, scientiststurned to previous studies that described the likely impact on regions around the world. They then looked at changes in countries that grow agricultural products and then import them into the EU. In the work, the researchers examined the likely changes caused by drought for 2030, 2050 and 2085 under scenarios with medium and low emissions.

They found that due to droughts in other countriesby 2050, over 44% of agricultural products imported into the EU are likely to be vulnerable to heat and drought. By these years, in their opinion, the severity of drought in these areas will increase by 35%. They also note that crops such as coffee, cocoa, sugar, palm oil and soybeans will be most affected. Droughts in one or more countries can drastically reduce these supplies.
