The work done by the FACCE-JPI Knowledge Hub MACSUR on climate change impacts on crops, livestock and economics in Europe has been very successful, and FACCE-JPI is willing to reinforce the use of scientific outputs for policy makers. The intended Science-Policy Knowledge Hub instrument (SciPol) aims at creating a science-policy interface in order to facilitate the strategic design by member countries of their responses to the climate change adaptation and mitigation challenges for the agriculture and food sector. The approach is to collect national policy questions and priorities of the involved countries, translate them into scenarios aimed at reaching the policy targets which would then be assessed based on the available knowledge and additional work, e.g. modelling.
