Water for irrigation from rivers
Has there been made any assessments of the consequences on agricultural productivity due to river dry out as several mountainous glaciers in EU soon will stop feeding rivers with water from melting ice during summer ?

Dear Klaussall,

The EEA do not have any assessment focusing on this specific topic. However, you may be interested in the following publications:

• Europe’s ecological backbone: recognising the true value of our mountains ([…]/europes-ecological-backbone)
• Regional climate change and adaptation – The Alps facing the challenge of changing water resources ([…]/alps-climate-change-and-adaptation-2009).
