UK-China Workshop on the Impacts of Climate Change on Agriculture

September 11-12, 2002
Beijing, China

 

Introduction

     Climate change has drawn more and more worldwide concern since the 1990’s when IPCC has conducted climate change impact assessment. Climate change impact on agriculture has been one of the extreme important research areas, where it is worthwhile to carry out further studies.

     Under the agreement between DEFRA and MOST, DEFRA proposed to initiate a joint UK/China project to assess the impacts of climate change on agriculture in China. This project aims to build capacity for this type of research within China, through facilitating the academic exchange between UK and Chinese scientists and conducting training courses. After one- year practice, this project bears some fruits.

    In order to further promote the common understanding of climate change impacts on agriculture, both sides agreed to hold a mid-term workshop to invite relevant experts to share their new research findings in climate change impact study and discuss the issues for future cooperation.

 

Objectives

The  objectives of this workshop are to provide a central forum for the experts of the two sides to explore innovative solutions to improve understanding of climate change impacts on agriculture and of possible adaptation as well. The workshop is expected:

1.       To review the progress of impact assessment  on climate change around the world,  especially UK and China since IPCC TAR, with an emphasis on impact and adaptation assessment of climate change on agriculture

2.       To introduce the preliminary research result of Sino-UK project on climate change

3.       To increase coordination of international projects into a more coherent climate change program

4.       To make a contribution to international assessments relevant to climate change impacts especially on agriculture

5.       To provide forum for  experts from China and UK
