An international team of scientists, led by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), have developed a methodology to identify and define emerging risks for food and feed safety, plant and animal health, and nutritional quality related to climate change.

The approach of the CLimate change and Emerging risks for Food SAfety (CLEFSA) project is described in a new report, which includes scoresheets that characterise possible effects climate change could have on a wide range of food safety-related issues.

A webinar on the outcome of the project is planned later in 2020.
