The Workshop will convene 30-40 experts to finalize protocols for a coordinated global and regional assessment of climate change impacts on the agricultural sector. Global economic modeling will enable quantification of economic drivers that in turn provide feedback on regional agricultural management and adaptation policies. Methods of aggregation, including the use of gridded agricultural models to scale up to global commodity markets, will be advanced. The assessment will cover major regions in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, East Asia, South Asia, and Australia, enabling characterization of impacts on large-scale and smallholder farming systems.
