News IFPRI Launches New Climate Change Webpage Focusing on Adaptation and Mitigation in Developing Countries

Global climate change poses great risks to poor people whose livelihoods depend directly on agriculture, forestry, and other natural resource uses. The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) has launched a new Climate Change webpage that features its research on the assessment of, adaptation to, and mitigation of these risks. Highlights include a BMZ-funded research project that seeks to help policymakers and stakeholders in Ethiopia and South Africa develop climate change adaptation strategies. As modeling is a major focus of IFPRI’s current work on climate change, the page links to explanations of its analysis using IFPRI’s IMPACT model and the MIRAGE model. The page also includes podcasts, a 2-page brochure of IFPRI’s climate change work, and a new paper on the Impact of Climate Change and Bioenergy on Nutrition.
