Abstract

This paper provides the first detailed estimates of the economic impact of climate change on the agricultural sector in China. The analysis computes the impacts of changes in temperature and precipitation on agricultural net revenue per hectare. The AA. utilized county-level agricultural, climatic, socio-economic and edaphic data for 1275 agriculture-dominated counties for the period of 1985-1991, to examine farmer-adapted response to climate variations across the country. Although they applied methodologies developed in the United States, much attention is paid to adapting these methods to China's conditions, such as farm labor, management, and technology development
