Brief description of the data offering

AgriAdapt is a free online tool that helps agricultural funders, processors, distributors, government agencies, and other “missing middle” links of agricultural value chains better identify and understand the climate change risks they face.

The map-based tool provides global, map-based and crop-specific data for coffee, cotton and rice value chains in Colombia and India respectively. It includes information on changing land use suitability, projected shifts in temperature and rainfall patterns and much more. The goal is to inform decisions about which crops to grow where and when, and ways to make processing, distribution and storage more resilient, ultimately enhancing the climate resilience of people working in the most vulnerable parts of these supply chains.

  1. The Home page provides a quick view of what can be found on the platform, introducing users to each section and providing suggested preset data overlays for a quick start.
  2. The Crops page provides a narrative page for each selected crop (Coffee, Cotton, Rice), which uses data to tell the story of how climate change affects different parts of the value chain.
  3. The Map page includes two different sections: In "Layers," users will find the complete catalogue of data layers available in AgriAdapt, while the "Analysis" section permits aggregated analysis of the selected layers in specific geographic points selected by the user.

Where and how do you source your data?

AgriAdapt and project partners engage in active curation of data sets focused on climate resilience for agricultural supply chains, streamlining the process of accessing and navigating to relevant data. Sources include National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and more. The platform is continuing to evolve through the input of agricultural stakeholders and users.

What is the cost for your data offering?

No cost. AgriAdapt is a free, open-source data platform.
