What do Economists have to say about Climate Impacts on South Asia?

E. Somanathan

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: South Asia’s changing climate has had many different impacts including changes in ecosystems, more severe storms, rainfall that is more concentrated in a few days per year leading to more floods and more droughts, deaths from heat waves, crop losses, and reduced labor productivity in manufacturing. These have been studied by researchers in many different disciplines. In particular, economists have contributed to studies on the effects of warming on crop yields and on labor productivity.
