Food and Water Security under Global Change

Research Framework

Analysis of mitigation and adaptation strategies for increased food and water security must take into account the relevant hydrologic, agronomic, economic, social and environmental processes at the global and regional, national, basin, and local levels.

The research methodology chosen links the results from farm household surveys focusing on crop-level production functions and vulnerability characterization to basin modules and study countries, up to the level of regional and global analysis; and includes interactions with CGE and multi-market modules for impact analysis.
