10-13 November, 2014 - MACSUR Modelling Course, Florence

The goal of the course “Model oriented field experiments for climate change impact assessment” is to allow PhD and other students to develop a crop simulation model from basic processes such as phenology, leaf area development, dry matter production and the responses of processes to environmental factors.

10 - 12 February 2014: Modelling climate change impacts on crop production for food security Advisory Group, London

Advanced climate change risk assessments for agriculture and food security depend on robust and reliable modelling tools. Among the various empirical-statistical and mathematical simulation techniques, crop models play a central role as they are at the core of any climate impact assessment for the agricultural sector. These and related topics are addressed in FACCE MACSUR and other agricultural research projects and networks. The last international symposium on crop models capabilities, gaps and challenges dates back more than ten years ago and there is an urgent need to facilitate exchange among ongoing initiatives on crop modelling for food security under climate change. This first CropM International Symposium and Workshop, held at Oslo, 10-12 February 2014 attempts to fill this gap. It has four major goals: (i) to discuss the state-of-the-art and future perspectives of crop modelling and approaches for climate change risk assessment, including the challenges of integrated assessments for the agricultural sector (ii) to develop a joint vision and research agenda for crop modelling for the future (iii) to present and discuss CropM highlights and related activities and identify next steps to achieve its contribution to MACSUR goals (iv) to foster international collaboration in the interconnected research areas of food security, climate change and agrosystems modelling.
