The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) has initiated the development of a new personal computer-based decision support system for short-term and long-term yield forecasting, agricultural risk analysis associated with increasing extreme events and climate change impact  studies. The CCAFS Regional Agricultural Forecasting Toolbox (CRAFT) includes the client application with a user-friendly interface and the database implementation. It is designed to use gridded data schemes for spatial variability through the use of 5 and 30 arc minutes resolution grids. CRAFT is integrated with external engines; one for crop modeling for spatial crop simulations and one for seasonal climate forecasts using the Climate Predictability Tool (CPT) developed by the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI). This allows for the  support of multi crop model capabilities using the AgMIP approach. Currently DSSAT, APSIM and Sarra-H cropping system models have been implemented.
