The combination of a warming earth and an increasing global population will likely strain the world’s food systems in the coming decades. Quantitative measurements of these climate, population, and food system trends and shocks are undertaken by experts at the Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP). IFPRI’s participation in AgMIP is supported by the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) through the Global Futures and Strategic Foresight project

A particularly important initiative being implemented by AgMIP is the Coordinated Global and Regional Assessment.  Please join a panel of experts who will present key results and make the case for Coordinated Global and Regional Assessments that can: 

  • Assess the impacts of simultaneous severe droughts and floods occurring across multiple breadbasket regions, as well as other shocks, such as economic crises and conflicts; 
  • Address how different impacts have different time-scales, ranging from seasons to years to decades;
  • Evaluate agricultural production’s nutritional benefits, as measured not only in calories but also dietary intake and nutrients; and Inform adaptation to and mitigation of stresses of food systems, as well as food security and food policy more broadly.
