Using Climate Scenarios and Analogues for Designing Adaptation Strategies in Agriculture
To help bridge the gap between climate science and agricultural science, CCAFS is holding a capacitation workshop on how to use climate scenarios, modelling, and analogue tools to build the resilience of agricultural production systems. The workshop, titled “Using Climate Scenarios and Analogues for Designing Adaptation Strategies in Agriculture” will be held on 19-23 September in Kathmandu, Nepal.
In attendance will be participants from government, research and meteorological institutes, universities, and other key partners. They will mostly come from the South Asian (Indo-Gangetic Plains) region, but West and East Africa will be represented as well. The workshop will provide overviews of and training in climate modeling techniques and tools, including downscaling, weather generators, and modules. It will feature some CCAFS-produced or -refined outputs like MarkSIM and the climate analogue tool. The focus will be on how to use these instruments in real-world applications, so case studies will also be explored.
