Empirical studies on agricultural impacts and adaptation

Energy Economics, 2014, vol. 46, issue C, 555-561

Abstract: Agricultural production is heavily dependent on weather outcomes, and hence climate change has the potential to significantly alter the sector's productivity. Both reduced form studies as well as integrated assessment models have found that the agricultural sector might experience significant impacts. We discuss the advantages of empirical reduced-form studies and their link and potential usefulness to integrated assessment models. We further discuss challenges facing empirical studies and recent research that looks at the longer term changes in climate and attempts to measure adaptation.
