Samenvatting

The world has entered a human-dominated epoch, often referred to as the Anthropocene, where human activities are shaping local environments as well as the earth system. As a result,these activities can potentially adversely affect one another, and quantification of their interactions is needed to support integrated decision making. My thesis quantifies the interactions between agriculture, water and climate and explores the opportunities and limitations of agricultural adaptation. This information contributes to integrated policies and decision making for both sufficient agricultural production and sustainable water management in the epoch of the Anthropocene.
