Studying Climate Change from Different Methodological Perspectives

AAEA annual meeting track session

In the 2023 AAEA Annual Meeting track session (sponsored by the AAEA Agribusiness Economics & Management and the AAEA Econometrics Sections) “Studying Climate Change from Different Methodological Perspectives” authors will discuss the IPCC report revamps the urgency of its message to adapt to the dire conditions of a warming planet, forcing governments to evaluate adaptation and mitigation measures. To provide an outlook on agriculture and trade, practitioners employ several methodological techniques. This track session brings together experts that employ diverse tools to study climate change damages on agriculture and agricultural trade. The first presentation uses Bayesian Data Analysis to narrow down climate damages at the county level. The second study leverages on the body of findings on the interaction of climate change, agriculture and trade with a Meta Analysis. The third presenter explores the econometric limitations encountered in the study of climate change by accounting for farmers’ mitigation strategies. The final presentation combines a spatial econometrics technique with general equilibrium models to simultaneously study climate change and its implications for trade.
