AgMIP Community

Some logos of the many funders, partners, and collaborators of the AgMIP community of science who work together to compare and improve agricultural models.

How can model intercomparison and improvement impact food security?

Alex Ruane from NASA-Goddard Institute for Space Studies and AgMIP lead Climate Scientist explains in this video.

What is AgMIP?

The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) is a major international collaborative effort to assess the state of global agricultural modeling and to understand climate impacts on the agricultural sector.

AgMIP Mission

To substantially improve the characterization of world food security as affected by climate variability and change, and to enhance adaptation capacity in both developing and developed countries.

 
Why AgMIP?

Agricultural risks are growing – a probabilistic risk analysis is needed

Consistency is key – future studies need to use common assumptions to facilitate synthesis

Long-term solutions – translate to continuous model improvement

 
Collaboration

AgMIP is establishing a robust and rigorous research framework that connects climate, agriculture, economic, and information technology communities.


 
Research Projects

Interdisciplinary teams in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia are building capacity for continuing agricultural assessment and management in developing countries under variable and changing climate conditions.

 

FEATURE

Regional Research Teams meet in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

A cool bright June morning greeted the researchers arriving at the A’Zambezi Hotel in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe late last month as they joined over 80 participants from 24 countries in attending the Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) Regional Fundamentals Workshop.
