GC54A:
Observed and Projected Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources and Agriculture III


Session ID#: 10355

Session Description:
As growing population, increasing food consumption, and enhanced biofuel use generate rising demands for food and water resources, changes in global and regional climate are impacting local weather, altering the frequencies of heat waves, dry spells and precipitation events. These global and regional changes will affect food and fresh water security. This session will focus on observed and potential projected changes in 21st water resources and agriculture. We encourage submissions on: (i) research exploring how climate has and will influence food supplies, prices, stability and availability and food security, (ii) the implications of warming air temperatures for agriculture and water resources, (iii) research linking hydroclimatic anomalies and food security outcomes (vulnerability, malnutrition, etc.), (iv) analyses exploring water and food security in semi-arid and arid locales and (v) the exploration and/or attribution of climate change in recent hydroclimatic extreme events.
