LiveM 2016 Conference

On June 15th and 16th the LiveM 2016 Conference took place at PIK in Potsdam


Modelling Grassland-Livestock Systems under Climate Change

The meeting was jointly hosted by PIK and ATB-Potsdam, and we warmly invited modellers and researchers from across the MACSUR knowledge hub to join us in Germany. The aims of our conference were to:

  • Present advances in the modelling of grassland-livestock production systems in the context of future food security and sustainable production under climate change
  • Highlight the future challenges and research priorities for livestock and grassland modelling
  • Bring together modellers across nations and disciplines to share ideas, spread best practice and develop new collaborations as part of an integrated research community

The FACCE-JPI Knowledge Hub MACSUR brings together more than 70 institutes from 18 countries in order to improve capacity in modelling the impacts of climate change on agriculture, and how these impacts are affected by adaptation and mitigation strategies.

Within MACSUR, three themes interact to develop more integrated modelling approaches; CropM (crop modelling), TradeM (economic modelling) and LiveM (livestock and grassland modelling). The LiveM theme itself represents 30 institutes and includes a diverse range of experts, from grassland and farm-scale modelling through to livestock disease and health research.
