106 Symposium--AgMIP and Partners
Oral SessionSpecial Sessions
The agricultural sector today is facing the challenges of adapting to increasing impacts from climate change while minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and meeting ever-growing food demand. Crop-producing regions will be required to respond to these issues in the coming decades and their ability to do so will potentially affect all of humanity. The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) is a major international effort with more than 700 collaborators linking the climate, crop, and economic modeling communities with cutting-edge information technology to produce improved crop and economic models and the next generation of climate impact projections for the agricultural sector. The goals of AgMIP are to improve substantially the characterization of world food security due to climate change and to enhance adaptation capacity in both developing and developed countries. The proposed session will showcase and discuss the most recent outcomes from AgMIP and key partners, including MACSUR (Modelling European Agriculture with Climate Change for Food Security) and others.
