Climate Change Agriculture and Poverty

Applied Economic Perspectives and Policy

Thu 9 Sep 2010

Dear Colleague

Future economic development policy needs to be modified to better prepare the world’s poor for dealing with the adverse effects of climate change on agriculture.

This freely available topical article- just published in Applied Economic Perspectives and Policy:

– Climate Change, Agriculture, and Poverty

http://oxfordjournals-marketing.oup.com/c/15kwvB0vqXSHJiqvi
by Thomas W. Hertel and Stephanie D. Rosch
discusses the impact of severe climate events, like drought or flooding, on people in developing countries, where such events can cause the most human suffering.

The majority of the poor live in areas where agriculture is the predominate form of economic activity, Hertel said. In this type of environment, when something bad happens to agriculture, it can have a severe effect on the whole economy.

*Join in the discussion on climate change:*

Listen to Thomas W. Hertel discuss how climate change affects the world’s poor in this freely available podcast:

Kindest regards,
