Cereal Production Systems of Semiarid Regions in Transition under Climate Change

International Conference

Lieu et date : Minneapolis, MN (USA) November 13-14, 2015

Organisation  : USDA Regional Approaches to Climate Change (REACCH)

Présentation

The USDA Regional Approaches to Climate Change (REACCH) project is organizing an international conference that will address climate change impacts on agriculture systems, current research efforts, and farming adaptation strategies for coping with climate change in semiarid regions. The conference themes will draw attention to the major environmental factors that are driven by increasing atmospheric greenhouse gases, including increased air, water, and soil temperatures, altered or diminished water availability, emergence of new pest and pathogen threats, and dynamically changing vegetative and soil biodiversity. The agricultural impacts and responses to these climate change factors will be considered in the context of sessions that focus on : response strategies to changing water, cropping system improvements, social and economic factors, managing soil nutrients, pests, pathogens and weeds, greenhouse gas monitoring and mitigation. Cropping system models, collaborative translational science, and global data management will serve as integrative themes.

Through this conference, we plan to :
1. Establish a global network of research teams addressing the implications of climate change for cereal based systems in semiarid regions.
2. Develop a plan for supporting ongoing integrative collaboration to address this issue.
3 . Articulate and disseminate to scientists and policymakers the importance of integrated approaches and actionable research to support this key component of global food security through the 21st century.
