About the Talk:

The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Program (AgMIP) goals are to substantially improve the capabilities for evaluating food security at local to global scales by improving agricultural models and protocol-based methods for using them.

In this talk, Professor James Jones will summarize the overall framework being developed and used by AgMIP contributors globally, with an emphasis on evaluation of technology and policy options for increasing productivity and reducing poverty at multiple scales, taking into account future climate change as well as future trends in other major factors affecting food security. Example results from AgMIP teams in Sub Saharan Africa and South Asia will be shown.
