Climate Change, Nutrition and Health

Climate Change, Nutrition & Health: Building Collaborative Structures
Montpellier, France
July 1, 2016
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Le Corum

Overview: The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) is a major international effort linking the climate, crop, and economic modeling communities with cutting-edge information technology to produce improved crop and economic models and the next generation of climate impact projections for the agricultural sector, including impacts to food and nutrition security. To date, there is not enough dialogue, interaction and collaboration between the nutrition and climate change communities, despite an increased recognition that nutrition is central to agriculture and food security.

Program: Following the 6th Global AgMIP Workshop, a special session co-organized by the ILSI Research Foundation was held on July 1, 2016 focusing on nutrition, health and climate change. This session highlighted some gaps in the disciplines as well as areas for collaboration and research.
