Jacob Bishop, Hermann Lotze-Campen


Following a MACSUR Workshop a joint working paper preliminary titled "More than a change in crop production: metrics and approaches to understand the impacts of extreme events on food security" is now in an advanced stage.

A conference paper based on an M.Sc. thesis by Christoph Buschmann, titled "A model-based economic assessment of future climate variability impacts on global agricultural markets" has been presented and the International Conference of Agricultural Economists, 2015. We are working on a journal publication at the moment.

Based on a B.Sc. thesis by Patrick Jeetze, we have submitted an abstract and held a presentation at the GlobalFood Symposium 2017, 28-29 April 2017 at Georg-August-University of Goettingen, Germany. Title: "Implications of future climate variability on food security: A model-based assessment of climate-induced crop price volatility impacts" We are currently working on a journal publication on this.

Finally, we contributed one section to MACSUR's Research Gap Report (H0.1-D).
