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

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.

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. When these activities are considered together, they represent 21 to 37 percent of total human-caused greenhouse gas
emissions…
