Assessing Impacts of Climate Change on Food Security WorldwideMarch 09, 2016
Cynthia Rosenzweig, John Antle, and Joshua Elliott
AGCI Workshop co-chairs Cynthia Rosenzweig, John Antle & Joshua Elliott share key findings of the 2015 workshop AgMIP Workshop on Coordinated Global and Regional Integrated Assessments of Climate Change and Food Security. The purpose of the workshop was to draft plans and protocols for assessing global- and regional-scale modeling of crops, livestock, economics, and nutrition across major agricultural regions worldwide. The goal of this Coordinated Global and Regional Integrated Assessments (CGRA) project is to characterize climate effects on large- and small-scale farming systems.

Gerald Meehl and Richard Moss
AGCI past participants Jerry Meehl, and Richard Moss reflect on how the Aspen Global Change Institute has convened scientists to define challenges, develop disciplinary and interdisciplinary research strategies, improve communication across natural and social sciences, and plan assessments and other decision support activities over the last 25 years.
NASA, NOAA Analyses Reveal Record-Shattering Global Warm Temperatures in 2015February 11, 2016
Thomas Karl from NOAA and Gavin Schmidt from NASA, presented new climate data in a media teleconference that indicates Earth’s 2015 surface temperatures were the warmest since modern record keeping began in 1880. These independent analyses provide government and business leaders with critical decision-making information.
Toward Improving Decadal Climate PredictionsDecember 21, 2015
George Boer, Gerald Meehl, Doug Smith
2015 workshop co-chairs George Boer, Jerry Meehl, and Doug Smith, report on the outcomes of the Decadal Climate Predictions: Improving Our Understanding of Processes and Mechanisms to Make Better Predictions AGCI workshop. The new field of decadal climate prediction has the potential to provide time-evolving regional climate information on timescales of 1–10 years.
First Convening of the Coordinated Global and Regional Assessment (CGRA)December 10, 2015
James Oliver and Erik Mencos Contreras
James Oliver & Erik Mencos Contreras offer insight into AGCI's 2015 AgMIP Workshop on Coordinated Global and Regional Integrated Assessments of Climate Change and Food Security. The CGRA workshop was one of the first efforts to focus on the melding together of differing disciplines and scales to develop a more consistent and complete assessment of food security.
