3rd Annual Global Workshop
UN FAO Headquarters,
Rome, Italy 
October 10th – October 12th 

The AgMIP 2012 Global Workshop, held October 10th-12th in Rome, Italy, brought together over 200 participants from 31 countries around the world. Research activities concerning climate scenarios, crop modeling, economics, and information technologies, as well as regional initiatives and crop-specific assessments were discussed in plenary session presentations and in breakout work-groups.

The goals of the 2012 AgMIP Global Workshop were to:

  • Review progress and present results for AgMIP regional and global research programs;
  • Refine AgMIP protocols for model intercomparisons to include uncertainty and scaling;
  • Advance AgMIP regional and global integrated assessments of food security; and,
  • Build transdisciplinary collaborations. These goals were surpassed as attendees shared recent work and built connections for future projects. As the report (AgMIP Global Workshop Rome PDF) shows, the Global Workshop was designed around working breakout sessions that will provide the foundation for AgMIP’s projects in the coming year.

    PDFs of the plenary and breakout presentations are available for download here. Items in red are not cleared for release

    Over the last year 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’s 2012 Global Workshop provided tangible proof that this network is facilitating unique research opportunities as well as valuable results.
