A Comparative Study of Risk Management in Agriculture under Climate Change
Jesús Antón, Shingo Kimura, Jussi Lankoski, Andrea Cattaneo
Climate change affects the mean and variability of weather conditions and the frequency of extreme events, which to a great extent determines the variability of production and yields. This paper reviews the scientific literature on the impacts of climate change on yield variance and...

Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change
Ada Ignaciuk
Farmers will undertake many adaptation actions to meet changing climate conditions and will often do so without any government intervention. However, when such actions provide both private and public benefits, the public sector may play a role in how these are developed. This report aims to...

Adjustment Options and Strategies in the Context of Agricultural Policy Reform and Trade Liberalisation
Osamu Kubota
Reforming agricultural policies by reducing distorting support improves economic efficiency as a whole through a better allocation of resources. This implies that adjustment may have adverse effects on some agricultural households and other people engaged in the sector, in particular in the...
