Modelling System for Agricultural Impacts of Climate Change (MOSAICC)


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.

MOSAICC within project framework

Since 2015, FAO has been implementing the second phase of the project “Analysis and Mapping of Impacts under Climate Change for Adaptation and Food Security” (AMICAF) in Paraguay and Indonesia, which aims at assisting countries to address climate change impacts on agriculture from national to local level.

AMICAF consists of four components:

  1. Impacts of climate change on agriculture
  2. Food insecurity vulnerability analysis at household level
  3. Livelihood adaptation to climate change
  4. Institutional analysis and awareness raising

The first component uses the MOSAICC platform to generate spatially downscaled climate change scenarios and a robust assessment of the impacts of climate change on crops and water resources.
