  • Assessing Impacts of Climate Change on Food Security Worldwide

    March 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.
