This workshop will bring together leading scientists in climate, hydrology, water resources management, agronomy, and economics to create strategies for integrating water supply and demand into AgMIP assessments of the agricultural sector. Specific objectives include:

1. Survey key existing climate, hydrologic, water resources management, agricultural, and economic modeling efforts

2. Identify and prioritize critical areas of uncertainty within and cascading across climate, hydrologic, water resources management, crop, and agricultural economic models

3. Leverage expertise in the fields of climate, hydrology, water resources management, agronomy, and economics to improve integrated assessment studies

4. Establish a research community to develop an AgMIP project exploring the impacts of water supply and demand on future agriculture
