Presented at: FACCE MACSUR Mid-Term Scientific Conference
‘Achievements, Activities, Advancement‘
April 1–3(+4), 2014, University of Sassari, Sardinia, Italy The mid-term meeting was held in Sassari, Sardinia, 1-4 April 2014. The meeting was attended by 120 researchers and stakeholders from 16 countries. After a day of looking back on the achievements during the first two years and presenting results to stakeholders, researchers focused on fine-tuning the planning of remaining work for the project till May 2015 and preparations for a follow-up project (MACSUR2) till May 2017. On an excursion, scientists and stakeholders visited farms in the Oristano region, one of the regional case studies of MACSUR. The meeting was a unique opportunity in this pan-European project for discussing in person common issues with and among stakeholders of different regions and how to approach the impact of climate change to producing food in Europe in a world with a growing population.

The food consumed during lunches at the conference originated mostly from the Oristano region. Remaining food in good condition was donated to a charity organisation for needy people.

Excursion: dairy sheep farm "Su Pranu" (Siamanna), dairy cattle farm "Sardo Farm" (Arborea), Arborea Cooperative

Cranfield have long-standing expertise in predicting the location-specific environmental impact of different farm systems, future regional land use, and the impact of current and future climate and socio-economic conditions on farmer decision making. •Regional integrated assessment and location-specific modelling (RegIS, RegIS2, CLIMSAVE) •Scenario-based modelling of future land use (AgFutures, ChReam) •Crop, farm systems and environmental impact modelling (MEASURES, AgriLCA) •Multiple objective modelling (RELU) •Hydrological modelling
