Technical Session A: Climate Change and Potato Agri-food Systems
Chair: Peter VanderZaag – Director | Sunrise Potato
Co-chair: David Ramirez – Crop Ecophysiologyst | International Potato Center

Monday, 28 May – 14.30 – 17.30 hrs

Summary:

Climate change will constrain the capability of agrosystems to provide 60% more food and 3 times more water to feed the increasing population which is predicted to reach 9.2 billion for 2050. The increase of atmospheric temperatures, higher occurrence of extreme events like droughts and fl ooding, displacements and new incidences of pest and diseases, disruption of food markets among others are current eff ects of Climate Change which will be enhanced by no appropriate wáter and land management. Under this scenario, the reduction of vulnerability, the improvement of adaptive capacity, and the increase of resilience and transformability of agrosystems reorienting policies in response to Climate Change are crucial to mitigate its likely eff ects. In this thematic session we will revise, share and discuss the current scientifi c topics related to the improvement of prediction capacity, building evidence and resources management in agrifood potato systems around the world to cope with Climate Change. Perspectives like precision agriculture, climatic smart genotypes, modeling for the analysis of yield gap, environmental footprint and response analyzes of potato systems under diff erent climatic scenarios and policies to enhance resilience have been topics published in the last years and this thematic session pretend to address.
