The models

The models integrated in FAO-MOSAICC are organized in four main components:

  • Climate data processing tools: statistical downscaling and interpolation tools aimed at preparing the data for the crop and the hydrology modelling tools
  • Crop models: simulate crop growth under climate change scenarios, using the data produced by the climate data processing tools
  • Hydrological model: models the hydrology of river basins under climate change scenarios, using the data produced by the climate data processing tools
  • Economic model: simulates the impact of yield variations due to climate change on national economies

These models are are interconnected and were designed to facilitate the data flow from one to the other.
