AgMIP’s 7th Global Workshop will be held Tuesday-Thursday, April 24-26, 2018 at the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) in San Jose, Costa Rica. The IICA partnership and venue provide an excellent opportunity for synergistic exchange on agricultural systems and outcomes. The program offers an exciting mix of innovative research results as well as work sessions to organize agricultural modeling research and applications that address key challenges articulated by agricultural decision-makers. 

Workshop Goals:

  1. Demonstrate how AgMIP can help address major global and national challenges including the Sustainable Development Goals and climate change mitigation and adaptation planning
  2. Convene the agricultural modeling community and share AgMIP vision, latest findings, activities, and focus areas
  3. Identify opportunities for major stakeholder-driven efforts related to Next Generation Tools, Coordinated Global and Regional Assessments, and Sustainable Farming Systems
  4. Bolster AgMIP Initiatives in Latin America and the Caribbean
  5. Plan AgMIP activities and outputs for the years ahead
