We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The October issue of the JRC MARS Bulletin Crop monitoring in Europe and the Kazakhstan issue of the JRC MARS Bulletin global outlook series were published today
To better guide policy decision-making on mitigating the risk of climate change, novel and interdisciplinary approaches are required, which involve a dialogue between scientists from different communities (e.g., climate and impact modelling) and stakeholders to share data and knowledge. Credible and meaningful metrics need to be developed that can help quantifying risks related to physical climate change.
According to the JRC MARS crop monitoring Bulletin for Europe, published today, favourable conditions prevailed in most of France, Germany and the Benelux countries. In Mediterranean regions and eastern Europe, heatwaves and low precipitation continued until the end of August.
