The 5th AgMIP Global Workshop will be held at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL starting on the afternoon of February 25th and concluding midday of February 28th, 2015.

Workshop Goals

  1. Review AgMIP progress to date and enable AgMIP groups to interact and plan
  2. Prioritize next generation model improvements for sustainable intensification, climate change impacts, and adaptation
  3. Advance strategy for coordinated global and regional assessments of climate impacts on food security for the IPCC 6th Assessment Report
Synopsis

The 5th AgMIP Global Workshop will provide an opportunity to share progress, new understanding, and lessons learned in AgMIP’s numerous research activities. Participation of AgMIP’s broad diversity of partners facilitates sharing of important results, advancement of initiatives underway, development of new collaborative research activities, and dialog and planning for AgMIP coordinated global and regional climate impact assessments in support of the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (AR6) and other major community initiatives.

The Workshop will challenge participants to prioritize what is needed in the next generation of model assessments and the development of a complementary framework informing sustainable intensification, forming strategies to deliver tailored information at the scales decision-makers require. The Workshop will also solidify linkages between global modeling done for the IPCC AR5 and the integrated framework of climate-crop-livestock-economic models developed in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, with a focus on international linkages and the evaluation of adaptation packages and agricultural development pathways of interest to decision-makers.

These aims will be realized through a mix of keynote, discussion, breakout, parallel presentations, and poster session engagements. Researchers from AgMIP regions will participate in all stages of workshop planning and execution. General Inquiries: info@agmip.org

We hope to see you there!
