Impact of Climate Change on Agricultural Production in Asian Countries: Evidence from Panel Study


  • Lee, Jaehyuk
  • Nadolnyak, Denis A.
  • Hartarska, Valentina M.


We analyze the impact of climate change on agricultural production in 13 Asian countries for 1998-2007 estimating country-level FE panel model using climate variables. Higher summer temperature and rainfall increase production, higher fall temperature decreases it in Southeast Asia, and increase in annual temperature decreases agricultural production in Asian countries.
