GRENE Environmental InformationClimatic Changes and Evaluation of Their  Effects on Agriculture in Asisan Monsoon Region


 

Research Plan

In order to improve the reliability of future climate prediction and to develop the information platform which will be useful to design adaptation and mitigation strategies in agriculture against the predicted climatic changes in Asian monsoon region, we will conduct the following research items.

Research items
  1. Development of agro-meteorlogical and climatological data-bases in the developing countries in Asian monsoon region.
  2. Evaluation of land surface conditions on climate in Asian monsoon region.
  3. Elucidation of the effects of climatic changes on major crops in Asian monsoon region.
  4. Development of the information platform to design adaptation and mitigation strategies of major crops against the predicted climatic changes in Asian monsoon region.
Objectives
  1. Development of information system on agro-meteorlogical and climatological data in Asian monsoon region that can be utilized in DIAS (Data Integration and Analysis System). 
  2. Evaluation of land surface conditions on climate characteristic in Asian monsoon region by utilizing climate model outputs available in DIAS.
  3. Elucidation of climate changes on major crops in Asian monsoon region by field surveys and development of evaluation system by utilizing meteorological data and crop models.
  4. Development of information platform to design adaptation strategies of major crops against the predicted climatic changes and to evaluate the mitigation potential by reducing green house gasses from agricultural sector in Asian monsoon region. 
Planned benefits ?
  1. Development of information platform on climate changes, land use, and agrometeorology, that on the prediction of major crops against the predicted climatic changes for designing adaptation and mitigation strategies in Asian monsoon region. Provision of these information to society through DIAS.   
  2. Education of young scientists in Asian developing countries who will lead researches on adaptation and mitigation strategies against the future climatic changes and development of regional collaboration network by them.
  3. Development of research platform for adaptation and mitigation policies in Asian agricultural sector against the future global warming in the coming post-Kyoto Protocol period.
