Title: Climatic Changes and Evaluation of Their Effects on Agriculture in Asian Monsoon Region - A project of GRENE-ei programe in Japan

Authors: Masaru Mizoguchi (U. Tokyo, Leader of GRENE-ei CAAM)

We have started a research project entitled "Climatic changes and evaluation of their effects on agriculture in Asian monsoon region (CAAM)" under the research framework of the Green Network of Excellence (GRENE) for the Japanese fiscal years from 2011 to 2015 supported by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). This project aims 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 regions. In this presentation, I will explain the outline of the project.
