A new software application AIRCCA assesses the impacts of risks and climate change for rainfed maize, wheat and rice yields on a global scale.

IVM’s Predrag Ignjačević, Wouter Botzen, Francisco Estrada, Onno Kuik, Philip Ward and Timothy Tiggeloven developed a river flood risk model, CLIMRISK-RIVER, and introduced it into an existing climate-economy integrated assessment model (IAM). It operates on a local scale and can project climate change-related river flood damage for various socioeconomic, climate and flood adaptation scenarios. Their results are published in Environmental Modeling & Software.
