【报告地点】:北京理工大学 主楼六层 能源与环境政策研究中心

 

【报告内容介绍】:
  We investigate the dynamic impact of climate change on agricultural TFP in Australia through using a vector error correction model to the panel data and allowing for regional heterogeneity and other control variables. Climate change generates a complex impact on agricultural productivity across regions: In the long run, water availability and temperature; In the short run, water availability matters more. Farmers are able to adopt to climate change through optimising the capital-labor ratio and adjusting the output mix.
