GAEZ Data Portal Content Background AEZ methodology and tools GAEZ Data Portal Features Next Steps Main activities of the organization Putting information within reach Sharing policy expertise

Providing a meeting place for nations Bringing knowledge to the field GAEZ assessments FAO and IIASA have developed the spatial analysis system that enables: rational land-use planning based on the inventory of land, water and soil resources evaluation of biophysical limitations and production potentials of land using FAO AEZ methodology

for land evaluation 1976 2007 Version 1.x and 2.x 2000/02 Version 3.x 2012 Selection of AEZ related tools CropWat a decision support tool for Windows; AquaCrop a crop water productivity model that simulates yield response to address conditions where water is a key limiting factor ;

AgroMetShell, NewLocClim, MOSAICC tools to conduct agroclimatic analysis; Eto calculator mainly to calculate Reference Evapotranspiration according to FAO standards; LRIMS ArcGIS extension to conduct Land Suitability Analysis (*); BEFS tools A set of ArcInfo tools to conduct Land Suitability Analysis ECOCROP a tool to provide agro-ecological information on crops and productivity. Selection related databases GAEZ database FGGD database - available at FAOSTAT and CountryStat AgroMAPS Global Spatial Database of Agricultural Land-use Statistics

AQUASTAT - global information system on water and agriculture CLIMWAT - a climatic database to be used in combination with CROPWAT CLIMPAG database on Climate Impact on Agriculture Land Cover data GLCN website Harmonized World Soil Database v1.2 released in 2012 databasesinformation-systems/en/ Selected applications of AEZ Quantification of land productivity; Estimations of rain-fed or irrigated cultivation potential for food, feed, fiber, and bio-energy feedstock production;

Identification of environmental constraints to agricultural production; Identification of potential hot spots of agricultural conversion and possible geographical shifts in agricultural land potentials due to changing climate; Identification of areas for crop intensification FAO 2012 State of Land and Water Resources Report FAO 2011

FAO GAEZ data portal version 3.0 provides interactive and dynamic web application to report on the current state and trends of agricultural production and crop suitability; designed based on multi-dimensional, multi-temporal and multi-purpose database; developed using standards and innovative technology; enables public access to data and information, becoming a gateway global, regional and local geospatial and tabular information on agricultural resources and potential GAEZ data portal capabilities

designed to facilitate access to the GAEZ database and resources; enables users management; delivers terabytes of spatial data, maps, tables, statistics, metadata, reports; Fully documented (Data model, Users Manual, GAEZ definitions, FAQ, limitations, and hints available) ; Compliant with FAO definitions, classifications and standards, ISO metadata standards to feed FAO GeoNetwork as part of GAEZ menu structure

GAEZ factsheet - Dimensions THEMES 5 thematic areas (> 300,000 global datasets at mainly 5 arc-minutes, also core layers at 30 arc-seconds) CROPS 11 crop groups, 49 crops, 92 crop types and 280 Crop/LUTs downscaling of 23 crops/commodities are available for 23 crop/commodities yield and production gap analysis for 17 crops/commodities WATER SUPPLY 5 water supply types (rain-fed, irrigation, gravity, sprinkler, drip) INPUT LEVELS
