The human dimension

AMMA will produce estimates of a range of direct and indirect impacts of changes in the monsoon on food security and water resources.

The improved prediction of seasonal food production will serve as input for Early Warning Systems and help define the regional vulnerability.
AMMA will study the human dimension through the direct impact of the climatic conditions on the land productivity, water resources and public health.

For agriculture we will go a step further and examine the adaptation strategies available to the local farmers and the policies which would help reduce the vulnerability of these activities to climatic anomalies.
This activity will integrate the impact of water resources and public health on the food security in order to provide an integrative view.
