Modelling System for Agricultural Impacts of Climate Change (MOSAICC)

Partnering with Indonesia through the AMICAF project


Indonesia is the largest archipelago country in the world by area and population. Agriculture is the main source of employment in rural areas, where poverty is most prevalent. Climate change is threatening food security in Indonesia so managing climate risks is imperative.

Since November 2015 FAO has worked in partnership with the Indonesian Agency for Agricultural Research and Development (IAARD) the Department of Agriculture, and other government agencies through AMICAF (Analysis and Mapping of Impacts under Climate Change for Adaptation and Food Security) project. MOSAICC’s climate, hydrology and crops components have been applied for nation-wide assessment of projected impacts of climate change on agriculture at the sub-national scale for evidence-based adaptation planning. 

All technical trainings have been completed by May 2017, and local partners have produced preliminary results.
