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

AgMIP researchers and stakeholders consider big questions about the future of agriculture with climate change at Arusha Workshop

In late January of this year a much-anticipated meeting was held in Arusha, Tanzania. More than 150 researchers and stakeholders from 26 countries and 90 institutions across Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia filled a large conference room at the Mount Meru Hotel.
