Overview: The 5th AgMIP Global Workshop provided an opportunity to share progress, new understanding, and lessons learned in AgMIP’s numerous research activities. Participation of AgMIP’s broad diversity of partners facilitated sharing of important results, advancement of initiatives underway, development of new collaborative research activities, and dialog and planning for AgMIP coordinated global and regional climate impact assessments in support of the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (AR6) and other major community initiatives.
Outcomes: The workshop challenged participants to prioritize what is needed in the next generation of model assessments and the development of a complementary framework informing sustainable intensification, forming strategies to deliver tailored information at the scales decision-makers require. The workshop also solidified linkages between global modeling done for the IPCC AR5 and the integrated framework of climate-crop-livestock-economic models developed in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, with a focus on international linkages and the evaluation of adaptation packages and agricultural development pathways of interest to decision-makers.
