Food policy indicators: Tracking change: International Model for Policy Analysis of Agricultural Commodities and Trade (IMPACT)

International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)
global food policy report

IFPRI's IMPACT model allows policy makers, analysts, and civil society to explore future scenarios for food security—including the impact of climate change on agricultural production and hunger—through an integrated system of linked economic, climate, water, and crop models. Projections reported here by region and country include aggregate food production, per capita food consumption, and numbers at risk of hunger, all in “with” and “without” climate change scenarios, as well as detailed breakdowns for major crops. The baseline projections indicate that global food production will grow by 60 percent over 2010 levels by 2050 in the context of climate change—10 percentage points less than would be the case without climate change.
