CIFTRESS - "Climatic Impact on Food Trade RESilience and Security"

Global climate change adversely affects crop yields and undermines humanity's food security and resilience; while previous research has focused on regional agricultural adaptation, the opportunities and vulnerabilities of trade networks have remained less explored. The CIFTRESS project adopts an interdisciplinary methodology drawing on crop yield modeling, economic trade modeling, network science, and quantitative scenario building approaches to interpret the 'in-direct' trade flow relationships relevant to the notions of food resilience and security.
