Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project 

The AgMIP Mission is to significantly improve agricultural models, and scientific and technological capabilities, for assessing impacts of climate variability and change and other driving forces on agriculture, food security, and poverty at local to global scales.

The Three AgMIP Pillars

Next-Generation Knowledge, Data, and Tools

Coordinated Global and Regional Assessments

Modeling Sustainable Farming Systems

Next-Gen Knowledge, Data, and Tools

Agricultural data stewardship and advanced tools are needed to enable sustainable production that can meet future national and international food, fiber, and bioenergy needs

Coordinated Global and Regional Assessments

CGRA uses a multi-model, multi-scale, multi-disciplinary, and multi-method framework to explore adaptation, mitigation, food policy, and food security in the face of an uncertain future

Modeling Sustainable Farming Systems

Sustainable farming systems is about assessing water; land; climate extremes and carbon-smart economically viable agricultural practices in a changing world

NEW AgMIP GGCMI PAPER

Nov 1, 2021

The paper found that climate change may affect the production of maize and wheat as early as 2030 under a high greenhouse gas emissions scenario. Using advanced climate and agricultural models, the authors found that the change in yields is due to projected increases in temperature, shifts in rainfall…

NEW AgMIP CALIBRATION PAPER

Sep 24, 2021

The paper proposes a novel method of developing guidelines for calibration of process-based models, based on development of recommendations for calibration of the phenology component of crop models. The approach was based on a multimodel study, where all teams were provided with…

CLIMATE WEEK 2021: FOOD SYSTEMS AND CLIMATE CHANGE

Sep 15, 2021

This event aims to bring together leading experts from the food systems science and policy research communities. Food systems science and policy domains have often been siloed in academia. Bridging the gap between scientists and policy experts…

IMPROVING THE QUANTIFICATION OF FOOD SYSTEM EMISSIONS

Jun 8, 2021

The Food Climate Partnership (FCP) is a new initiative developed jointly by experts from AgMIP, NASA GISS, Columbia University’s Center for Climate Systems Research and Center on Global Energy Policy, New York University, and…

AFRICA: POOR SOILS AND LIMITED FERTILIZER USAGE MASK IMPACTS

June 15, 2021

A study coordinated by CIRAD and published in Global Change Biology assesses the impact of temperature rise on maize yields in sub-Saharan Africa. It reveals that an increase of 4°C by 2081-2100 could result in a decrease in yields of 14 to 26%. Rain fed cereal production –  without irrigation – is crucial for food security in sub-Saharan Africa…

AgMIP8 VIRTUAL WEBSHOP RECAP

Nov 25, 2020.

The AgMIP8 Virtual Webshop took place from October 12 – 16th and showcased three themes central to AgMIP’s research and development – food systems, shocks, and actions. The free, virtual event had over 1000 registrants and encouraged involvement amongst those new to food systems as well as experts within agriculture and nutrition fields… 

CLIMATE CHANGE RESPONSES BENEFIT FROM A GLOBAL FOOD SYSTEM APPROACH

Feb 18, 2020.

A paper released today by the journal Nature Food presents a new global food system approach to climate change research that brings together agricultural production, supply chains, and consumption…

AgMIP BECOMES A GRA PARTNER

Oct 9, 2019.

The Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA) brings governments, research institutions, and other organizations together to find ways to grow more food (and more climate-resilient food systems) without increasing greenhouse gas emissions.  It has 57 member countries from all regions of the world…

Research Approach

AgMIP research aims to substantially advance our understanding of model strengths, weaknesses, and uncertainty while also developing new approaches including data integration and transdisciplinary modeling frameworks…read more

Research Teams

Experts come together to advance crop studies, research methods, and other topics that are critical to understanding how agriculture and food systems will respond to climate and other factors now and in the future.  Learn more about our 30+ teams.
