Workshop

AgMIP Workshop on Coordinated Global and Regional Integrated Assessments of Climate Change and Food Security

calendar
Sep 13th, 2015 - Sep 18th, 2015
location
Aspen

The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) has been working since 2010 to construct a protocol-based framework enabling regional assessments (led by regional experts and modelers) to provide consistent inputs to global economic and integrated assessment models. AgMIP’s community of 650+ climate, crop, livestock, economics, and IT experts has improved the state-of-the-art through model intercomparisons, validation exercises, regional integrated assessments, and the launch of AgMIP programs on all six arable continents (where regional leaders for the proposed assessment have been identified). Workshop participants will build protocols for a unifying assessment utilizing historical observations, climate projections and RCPs/SSPs from CMIP5 (and potentially CMIP6), and stakeholder-driven adaptation scenarios to provide cutting-edge assessments of climate change’s impact on food security and agricultural development. These protocols will build on the foundation of established protocols from AgMIP’s 30+ activities, and will emphasize the use of multiple models, scenarios, and scales to enable an accurate assessment of related uncertainties.
