2nd Annual Global Workshop

The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) has made considerable strides in building a global, transdisciplinary network of scientists to evaluate the impacts of climate change on crop production and food security around the globe. AgMIP is advancing research activities for climate scenarios, crop modeling, economics, and information technologies teams, as well as regional initiatives and crop-specific assessments.

This second Annual AgMIP Global Workshop was held immediately before the annual meeting of the American Society of Agronomy in San Antonio, October 13-15, 2011 at the Hilton Palacio del Rio in San Antonio, Texas.

Goals of the 2nd Annual AgMIP Global Workshop were:

  • To continue to entrain and build collaborations among leading crop, climate, and agricultural economics modelers from around the world.

  • To present initial AgMIP research results.

  • To build and organize AgMIP research programs for each AgMIP region.

  • To refine crop-specific intercomparisons and protocols.

  • To develop regional and global economic analyses of food security.
