Abstract

This project is linked to the Science and Technology National Institute for Climate Change (INCT-MC) - FAPESP Grant number 14/50848-9 - and proposes to replicate some of the INCT-MC features in the Chilean case. Given the focus of the call, we plan to adapt one of its sub-components ("food security") and one of its transversal themes ("economy and impacts on key sectors") to Chilean agroindustry. During the three-year period of the project, we plan to address issues related to the topic Environmental Sustainability vs. Food Production. This project aims at assessing issues involving the relationship between climate-agriculture-economics and implications for food security. (AU)
