Exploiting Information on Global Environmental Risks – Agriculture

Title: EIGER-Ag (Exploiting Information on Global Environmental Risks – Agriculture)
Abstract: EIGER-Ag has two objectives:
1.    To enhance the knowledge of and data available on land suitability and yield of key agricultural raw materials under climate change conditions.
2.    To serve as a pilot project for using spatially-referenced data sets to assist decision making and to improve environmental risk assessments.

EIGER-Ag will draw on the existing Agro-Ecological Zones (AEZ)
methodology, which was developed by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN (FAO) and IIASA
