As the second threat to the mankind, the climate change has been assessed in view of the feasible and practically applicable impacts on theOrganic Agriculture. The main and the peripheral issues were taken into consideration and possible further actions aimed at solving the problem were examined.
Interdisciplinary work and modelling have been considered as the main tools for defence against climate change impacts. The specific environmental problems of the local ecosystem have to be assessed, and the main conclusion is that without a co-operation of an Interdisciplinary team of local and international experts as well as institutions, the result will be unsatisfactory.
The protection of the Organic agriculture achievements could be done only as a part of the protection of mankind against the climate change.
