Summary: This book explores the interaction between climate change and the agriculture sector. Agriculture is essential to the livelihood of people and nations, especially in the developing world; therefore, any impact on it will have significant economic, social and political ramifications. Scholars from around the world and from various fields have been brought together to explore this important topic. The contributions found here analyze direct agronomic effects, the economic impacts on agriculture, agricultural impacts on the economy, agricultural mitigation and farmer adaptation. The authors argue that climate change is likely to have an extensive impact on agriculture around the world, through changes in temperature, precipitation, concentrations of carbon dioxide, and available water flows. This thorough and timely volume is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in exploring the impacts of climate change in arguably the most important sector of the world economy.Economists, agronomists, and climate modellers in academia and the public sector, policy analysts and development agency staff and graduate/post graduate students will find this remarkable volume a welcome addition to their collection.

Summary: The agricultural sector is closely linked to climate change. Agriculture has a significant impact on the process of climatic change while the latter has a potential effect on agricultural production. There is still considerable uncertainty surrounding the implications of climate change for agricultural production and the most effective ways to mitigate undesirable effects. The two studies included in this publication deal with issues related to major sources of uncertainty surrounding the relationship between agricultural production and climate change. The first study, by Robert Mendelsohn, addresses the impact of climate change on agriculture. It provides an analysis of the various methodologies that have been employed in measuring the potential impacts of climate change on agricultural production, and makes suggestions for future research. In the second study, by Dirgha Tiwari, the subject is the impact of agriculture on climate. A detailed analysis is made of the potential for implementing the Clean Development Mechanism proposed under the Kyoto Protocol Convention on Climate Change, in the agricultural sector of developing countries, along with relevant policy implications and requirements. Summaries in Arabic, French and Spanish of the two essays are included -https://books.google.com/books/about/Two_Essays_on_Climate_Change_and_Agricul.html?id=oQ0_Fz50frIC
