The aim of this project has been to understand the impact of climate change on key Pacific production systems - specifically those based on the staple root crops, taro and cassava.

This project used an APSIM modelling framework to develop crop modules to understand how specific taro and cassava varieties respond to projected changes in climate in the Pacific, and to identify strategies for farming systems adaptation.
