MOSAICC 2013 for website

  1. 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. 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. 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. 4. Climate Downscaling Crop yield modelling Hydrological modelling Economic analysis
  5. 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. 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. 7. Advantages • Replicability/ study comparison • Modularity and substitution • Maintenance needed but no licensing cost MOSAICC v1.0 to be released beginning of 2014.
