Some logos of the many funders, partners, and collaborators of the AgMIP community of science who work together to compare and improve agricultural models.
How can model intercomparison and improvement impact food security?
Alex Ruane from NASA-Goddard Institute for Space Studies and AgMIP lead Climate Scientist explains in this video.
What is AgMIP?
The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) is a major international effort to improve global agricultural models and to understand climate impacts on the agricultural sector.
To improve substantially the characterization of world food security as affected by climate variability and change, and to enhance adaptation capacity in both developing and developed countries.
Agricultural risks are growing – a probabilistic risk analysis that encompasses climate, crop, and economic data and provides long-term solutions is needed.
AgMIP brings together experts in climate, agriculture, economics, and information technologies to better understand the effects of climate change on agriculture and world food security.
Interdisciplinary teams in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia are building capacity for continuing agricultural assessment and management in developing countries under variable and changing climate conditions.
