Abstract

Modeling the impacts of climate change on agriculture presents a complex challenge arising from the wide-ranging processes underlying the working of markets, ecosystems, and human behavior. The analytical framework used in this monograph integrates modeling components that range from the macro to the micro to model a range of processes, from those driven by economics to those that are essentially biological in nature. This chapter brings together in one place the technical details associated with models used in this monograph along with other technical information that is common to most or all of the chapters. Figure 2.1 provides a diagram of the links among the three models used: the International Food Policy Research Institute’s (IFPRI’s) International Model for Policy Analysis of Agricultural Commodities and Trade (IMPACT) (Rosegrant et al. 2008), a partial equilibrium agriculture model that emphasizes policy simulations; a hydrology model incorporated into IMPACT; and the Decision Support Software for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) crop model suite (Jones et al. 2003), which is used to estimate yields of crops under varying management systems and climate change scenarios.
