  • Climate Change and Agriculture: An Economic Analysis of Global Impacts, Adaptation and Distriubtional Effects

    Climate Change and Agriculture: An Economic Analysis of Global Impacts, Adaptation and Distriubtional Effects

    Despite its great importance, there are surprisingly few economic studies of the impact of climate on agriculture and how agriculture can adapt under a variety of conditions. This book examines 22 countries across four continents, including both developed and developing economies.
