Ricerca sul tema della sicurezza alimentare e delle prospettive per i Progetti di sviluppo promossi dale Organizzazioni Internazionali nel settore agricolo.

 


Tematiche di ricerca

L'attività di ricerca si incentra sull'analisi economica delle tecnologie di adattamento e mitigazione del cambiamento climatico e degli effetti sulla sicurezza alimentare, con particolare attenzione al settore agricolo nei Paesi in via di sviluppo e alle relative politiche di intervento.
