‘The Symposium on Climate Change and Variability – Agro Meteorological Monitoring and Coping Strategies for Agriculture’ is organized by the Management Committee of COST734’ Impact of Climate Change and Variability on European Agriculture’ and the Commission for Agricultural Meteorology (CAgM) of WMO. The content of the symposium is closely connected to the themes of the working groups of COST734 and the term of reference of the ‘WMO Expert Team on Climate Risks in Vulnerable Areas” The symposium is devoted to the very important issue of agricultural crop production and climate change. The discussion is placed in the light of agro meteorology, in Europe and in the rest of the world. The event will serve as a meeting place between meteorologists and agronomists. The cooperation between these two groups of researchers is important to find optimal mitigation and adaptation strategies with respect to impacts of climate change/variability on agriculture. The book of abstracts for the symposium contains altogether 52 contributions. 26 of the abstracts are oral contributions, and 26 of the abstracts will be presented as posters.
