Climate Change Impacts on Rice Farming Systems in Northwestern Sri Lanka

A sustained program of research under AgMIP (Agricultural Model Inter-comparison and Improvement Project)  has led to the implementation for climate, crop, and economic models for rice agricultural systems in Sri Lanka.

Research under this program included generating future climate projections, using them to drive crop models that feed into integrated climate–crop–economic models that in turn quantify climate impacts on livelihoods and poverty.

A summary of the research was published recently and NASA TRS has made a scan of this chapter available on its website.
