The worldwide agricultural sector faces the significant challenge of increasing production to provide food security for a population projected to rise to nine billion by mid-century, while protecting the environment and the sustainable functioning of ecosystems. This challenge is compounded by the need to adapt to climate change by taking advantage of potential benefits, and by minimizing the potentially negative impacts, to agricultural production. The goals of Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) are to improve substantially the characterization of world food security under climate change and to enhance adaptation capacity in both developing and developed countries (www.agmip.org).

To accomplish these goals, AgMIP organizes protocol-based intercomparisons of crop and economic models and ensemble projections to produce enhanced climate change assessments by the crop and economic modeling communities. These assessments focus on research related to climate change agricultural impacts and adaptation. This chapter describes the AgMIP regional integrated assessment projects in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
