From June 13 to 17, livestock modelers from the regional teams of West Africa, Southern Africa, Pakistan, Indo-Gangetic Basin, and Southern India convened at Wageningen University, in Wageningen, Netherlands, for a training workshop. The participants are being trained in the use of LivSim, a livestock production model.

The workshop will assist their regional teams in furthering the Regional Integrated Assessments by incorporating livestock models into the regional assessments. This week, the focus is on analyzing the sensitivity of current farming systems to climate change.

During AgMIP6, livestock team members will convene for two sessions: a parallel session Tuesday afternoon – Session 1.8, Livestock and Grasslands – and a breakout session Thursday afternoon.
