THE IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON GLOBAL VINEYARDS
Global warming is now irrefutable. A certain number of consequences are already visible, others will manifest themselves in the years and decades to come. Most socio-economic sectors will be affected. Agriculture and viticulture are, of course, part of it. The vine is one of the most sensitive crops to strong temperature variations. More than heat, lack of water is the main threat. Sustainable development goals can only be achieved if climate change is under control. The stakes and the challenges are considerable for all the viticultural regions areas in the world.
