Workshop on Impacts of Global Climate Change on Agriculture and Livestock

The São Paulo Research Foundation, FAPESP, through the FAPESP Research Program on Global Climate Change invites to the

Workshop on Impacts of Global Climate Change on Agriculture and Livestock

The symposium aims to exchange knowledge and experiences on research in the field of impacts of global change on agriculture and livestock.

Topics such as the impacts of climate change on crop and food production in Brazil and around the world will be discussed. It will also include the discussion of results of research conducted to assess the impact of future climate change in crops such as soybeans, corn, coffee, sugarcane and forages. The impacts of land use change on the dynamics of soil microbial diversity, the carbon cycle and on soil carbon stock will also be presented.
