REGIONAL FARMING SYSTEMS

Studies of Impact and Adaptation

AgMIP interdisciplinary teams in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia have completed studies on complex farming systems at the locations listed below. For each location researchers evaluated projected climate change impacts and measured the vulnerability of the regional farming systems to those impacts. They also tested the value of adaptation packages developed for each region both in the present and future climate.
