FAO-MOSAICC (for MOdelling System for Agricultural Impacts of Climate Change) is a system of models designed to carry out each step of the impact assessment from climate scenarios downscaling to economic impact analysis at national level.
The modelling system also comprise documentation on methods and tools, as well as user manuals and sample data. The system will be installed in candidate countries and national institutions in which training will be organized (more details in section "Dissemination and capacity building"). In 2011, the system and related capacity building activities will be fully tested in Morocco before being exported to other countries.
FAO-MOSAICC is being developed in the framework of the EC/FAO Programme on “Linking information and decision making to improve food security” (GCP/GLO/243/EC), theme 3 "Climate change and food security". More information on www.foodsec.org.
