Participatory research, using the FAO’s Aquacrop model, is investigating crop yields under several climate change scenarios, and feeding the findings in to a national, cross-sectoral economic model. Stakeholders, from farmers to national decision makers, are using the same model to guide their decisions. The project will contribute to a National Adaptation Plan for Colombia, and be scaled across farming communities.
