Transcript

  • 1. MOSAICC: An inter-disciplinary system of models to evaluate the impact of climate change on agriculture FAO NRC Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change Adaptation Team (2013)
  • 2. MOSAICC Modelling System for Agricultural Impacts of Climate Change  4 disciplines (climate, hydrology, crops, economics)  1 database  1 server  1 set of interfaces
  • 3. MOSAICC The aim of MOSAICC is to assess the impacts of climate change on agriculture through simulations - Based on GCM outputs - Combining inter-disciplinary models - Used in a spatially explicit way - In a perspective of decision support at national level (Capacity development)
  • 4. Climate Downscaling Crop yield modelling Hydrological modelling Economic analysis
  • 5. Models • Data Access and Downscaling (DAD) Portal: statistical downscaling portal for climate scenarios from ENSEMBLES • AQUACROP: FAO water-driven crop yield model • WABAL: FAO crop specific water balance model • STREAM: DEM-based precipitation-runoff model • CGE: Computable General Equilibrium model • Other utilities: interpolation, potential evapotranspiration, cropping season, etc.
  • 6. Advantages • Participatory approach • Remote access • Nothing to install (web browser) • Easy data exchange • Low computing time • No data format or unit conversion • Data tracking down the flow
  • 7. Advantages • Replicability/ study comparison • Modularity and substitution • Maintenance needed but no licensing cost MOSAICC v1.0 to be released beginning of 2014.
