Since its creation in 2010, AgMIP has focused its work on understanding how agriculture and food security are vulnerable to global changes as well as how agricultural systems will respond to climate change and other socioeconomic factors in the years ahead.
This is a unique opportunity for researchers and decision-makers to interact with scientists from different parts of the world and to learn more about the new approach and tools developed by AgMIP to conduct comprehensive assessments of the impacts of climate change and adaptation efforts, as well as the use of these results in planning and in the establishment of priorities for decision-making and investments in research and development, stated Roberto Valdivia, a researcher at Oregon State University and Co-Leader of the AgMIP Regional Economics Team.
