Potential Impacts of Climate Change on World Food Supply: Datasets from a Major Crop Modeling Study
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_GISS_CROPCLIM_DB



Summary
Abstract: Datasets from a Major Crop Modeling Study contain projected country and regional changes in grain crop yields due to global climate change. Equilibrium

and transient scenarios output from General Circulation Models (GCMs) with three levels of farmer adaptations to climate change were utilized to generate crop yield estimates of wheat,

rice, coarse grains (barley and maize), and protein feed (soybean) at 125 agricultural sites representing major world agricultural regions. Projected yields at the agricultural sites were

aggregated to major trading regions, and fed into the Basic Linked Systems (BLS) global trade model to produce country and regional estimates of potential price increases, food shortages,

and risk of hunger. These datasets are produced by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) and are distributed by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science

Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide an assessment of potential climate change impacts on world crop production, including quantitative estimates of yield changes of major

food.
