www.jrc.ec.europa.eu Contact © European Union, 2012 Tailoring BioMA to assess climate change impact and adaptation options for Cuban agriculture Project Goal The BASAL project addresses the long-term sustainability of Cuban agriculture by providing farmers, researchers and decision-makers with the tools, methodology and knowledge to deal with climate change- related effects on food production and natural resources sustainability. Cuba’s agricultural policies attempt to achieve food security goals by: Maintaining or increasing productivity while conserving the natural resource base. Reducing food imports and increasing exports. Tackling the negative impacts of high input agriculture. Transforming agricultural systems from large scale, state managed monocultures to small scale, diverse and independently managed. However imminent and ongoing challenges to achieve food security goals have to be considered for planned adaptation. Project Approach The JRC-MARS component of BASAL contributes to its goals by introducing, adapting and applying the Biophysical Model Application (BioMA) framework in collaboration with INSMET to communicate modeling applications to stakeholders. BioMA framework for BASAL The applied modelling framework will be developed in three phases to ensure local stakeholders empowerment to apply and maintain the system. Phase 1: Making the BioMA platform available: 1.Deployment of BioMA platform adapted from the EUROCLIMA project. 2.Evaluate and define new requirements. 3.Training scientists on BioMA and modeling approaches used. Phase 2: Building a context specific BioMA application 1.Adding data at finer spatial resolution. 2.Defining requirements of the web portal with stakeholders. 3.Adding model capabilities (i.e. more crops) and calibrating according to user needs. Phase 3: Full system prototype: 1.Web portal testing and further customization. 2.Applications to assess climate change impacts and adaptations options. 3.Presentation, discussion and dissemination of results.

Decrease of rainfall during rainy season and increases during dry season. Significant temperature increase. Increase in frequency, length, intensity and geographic extent of drought. Increase in the frequency and intensity of hurricanes. Increased incidence and extent of areas affected by fires. Examples of observed impacts on crops: Sugar cane: harvest affected by unusual rainfall events during dry season. Droughts induced damages to recently planted areas. Potatoes: delayed induction of tuber formation due to higher than normal night temperatures.
