Climate change, land use change and agriculture: an integrated assessment using CIAS
This research focuses on examining the interactions between climate policy and land use change policy and the implication for global crop production and global food security.
This work makes use of the Community Integrated Assessment System (CIAS) to combine greenhouse gases emissions scenarios with models of the Earth’s climate, crop yields, global hydrology, land use dynamics and the world economy. This research is an extension of previous research on the impact of climate and agricultural management practices on global crop yield and is funded by a Tyndall Centre PhD research scholarship.
Duration: October 2010 to September 2013.
