  8. New science of climate change impacts on agriculture implies higher social cost of carbon

    22 Nov 2017 | Contributor(s): Nikki H

    Despite substantial advances in climate change impact research in recent years, the scientific basis for damage functions in economic models used to calculate the social cost of carbon (SCC) is either undocumented, difficult to trace, or based on a small number of dated studies. Here we present...

  9. An open source geospatial cyberinfrastructure for interdisciplinary collaboration and broader engagement

    26 Oct 2017 | Downloads

    Solving complex global problems demands that researchers from different disciplines work together, and their analytical tools, models and datasets interoperate. This is especially true in the context of sustainability. For instance, multiple goals of the United Nations Sustainable Development...

  14. Achieving Sustainable Irrigation Water Withdrawals: Global Impacts on Food Production and Land Use

    27 Sep 2017 | Publications

    Unsustainable water use challenges the capacity of water resources to ensure food security and continued growth of the economy. Adaptation policies targeting future water security can easily overlook its interaction with other sustainability metrics and unanticipated local responses to the...

  15. Analyzing Water Scarcity in Global CGE Models

    08 Sep 2017 | Publications

    Incorporating water into a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model operating at global scale can be extremely demanding due to the absence of standardized data, the sheer dimensions caused by intersecting river basins with countries, and difficulties to model demand for and supply of water....

  16. Predicting Long Term Food Demand, Cropland Use and Prices

    08 Sep 2017 | Publications

    This paper seeks to survey, understand and reconcile the widely divergent estimates of long run global crop output, land use and price projections in the current literature. We begin by reviewing the history of such projections and the different models and assumptions used in these exercises. We...

  17. Debunking the 'New Normal': Why World Food Prices are Expected to Resume their Long run Downward Trend

    08 Sep 2017 | Publications

    Contrary to the opinions expressed by many commentators, the recent episode of higher prices for agricultural commodities is likely a transitory phenomenon. When compared to the last half-century, population growth is expected to be much slower in the coming decades, with nearly all of the growth...
