Abstract

Climate change challenges enable us to evaluate the impact of climate change not only on
nature but also on human activities. The aim of the paper is to present the research on the most
significant threats and opportunities of Lithuanian agriculture and forestry related with climate
change. Research was performed by Lithuanian institute of Agrarian Economics. Qualitative research
methods were used in this research – SWOT analysis, generalisation of experience and
focus group discussion. The most important external factors affecting Lithuanian agriculture and
forestry were identified by using these research methods. These factors should be on the focus in
the process of the risk management strategy formulation for Lithuanian agriculture and forestry
sectors.
