Abstract: In India, as elsewhere in the world, climate change is now high on the political and public agenda. In the subcontinent, particular attention is being paid to the impact of climatic changes on agriculture since there could be serious implications for food security. // A new SANDEE study examines how climate change will affect agricultural revenue in India. The study, which is the work of K.S. Kavi Kumar from the Madras School of Economics in Chennai, uses a pioneering approach that incorporates spatial features in examining the sensitivity of agriculture to climate change. This approach takes into account spatial linkages across farmers and postulates that farmers are influenced by their colleagues in surrounding areas and learn from each other to adapt to changes in climate.
Description: This policy brief is based on SANDEE working paper no. 45-09 "Climate sensitivity of Indian agriculture : do spatial effects matter?"
