Abstract

Describes some ways in which global simulation models of relationships between environment, economics and population, might be used to examine the impacts of climate change on the world food system. Presents an analysis of the response of the International Futures Simulation model to changes in crop yields as a surrogate for climate. This sensitivity analysis provides a range of scenarios of how global and regional food systems might respond to climate changes. The analysis provides some insight into the complex responses of actual food systems to changes in food production. -Author
