Transcript

  • 1. Climate change and the outlook for Cassava Andy Jarvis and Julian Ramirez
  • 2. Climate change is not new…but is accelerating
  • 3. Global Climate Models (GCMs) • 21 global climate models in the world, based on atmospheric sciences, chemistry, biology, and a touch of astrology • Run from the past to present to calibrate, then into the future • Run using different emissions scenarios
  • 4. So, what do they say?
  • 5. Temperatures rise….
  • 6. Changes in rainfall…
  • 7. -0.5 0.0 0.5 1.0 1.5 2.0 2.5 3.0 3.5 4.0 -100 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 Cumulated precipitation anomaly (mm) A1b Cumulatedtemperatureanomaly(ºC)A1b Angola Ghana India Malawi Mozambique Uganda Tanzania Nigeria Congo 1870 Baseline 2020 modeling time-limit 2050 modeling time-limit 2099 modeling time-limit
  • 8. TRENDS IN CLIMATE FOR CASSAVA GROWING ENVIRONMENTS
  • 9. Climate changes in cassava growing environments 0.6 0.7 0.8 0.9 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 -250 -150 -50 50 150 250 Change in precipitation (mm) Changeintemperature(°C) Australasia Caribbean Central Africa Central America Eastern Africa South America Southern Africa Western Africa NGA THA IDN BRA LBR CRI COL MWI
  • 10. •Crops develop more quickly in higher temperatures Pritchard and Amthor 2005
  • 11. Cassava – an exception to the rule? •In many cases, roughly 6-10% yield loss per degree •For example, US maize, soy, cotton yields fall rapidly when exposed to temperatures >30˚C Schlenker and Roberts 2009 PNAS
  • 12. Impacts of climate change to food security • Lobell et al. looked at impacts of climate change on food security • Cassava clearly highlighted as suffering least among many staples • Particular opportunities as an alternative crop for southern Africa
  • 13. Nothing new!
  • 14. The Model: EcoCrop It evaluates on monthly basis if there are adequate climatic conditions within a growing season for temperature and precipitation… …and calculates the climatic suitability of the resulting interaction between rainfall and temperature… • So, how does it work?
  • 15. Current suitability Growing season (days) 240 Killing temperature (°C) 0 Minimum absolute temperature (°C) 15.0 Minimum optimum temperature (°C) 22.0 Maximum optimum temperature (°C) 32.0 Maximum absolute temperature (°C) 45.0 Minimum absolute rainfall (mm) 300 Minimum optimum rainfall (mm) 800 Maximum optimum rainfall (mm) 2200 Maximum absolute rainfall (mm) 2800

  • 21. A bright future for cassava?
  • 22. CHANGE IN SUITABILITY FOR CASSAVA - 2050 Negative Positive
  • 23. CHANGE IN SUITABILITY FOR MAIZE - 2050 Negative Positive Contrasting responses between maize and cassava: 2-3oC temp rises, changes in prec
  • 24. A big unknown….
  • 25. Change in Green Mite pressure to 2020
  • 26. Changes in Whitefly prevalence to 2020
  • 27. Areas for research • CO2 impacts on cassava • Climate change impacts on quality…and toxicity
  • 28. Pests and disease response • Sound experimental multi-environment trials • Coupled with modelling • Allowing us to understand thresholds •Direct damage to reproductive cells (e.g. rice spikelet sterility)
