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

An Economic Analysis of Global Impacts, Adaptation and Distributional Effects

  • New Horizons in Environmental Economics series

Robert Mendelsohn and Ariel Dinar

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. It provides both a good analytical basis for additional work and solid results for policy debate concerning income distributional effects such as abatement, adaptation, and equity.
