The Impact of Climate Change and Adaptation on Food Producton in Low-Income Countries: Evidence from the Nile Basin, Ethiopia, by Mahmud Yesuf, Salvatore Di Falco, Claudia Ringler, and Gunnar Kohlin. IFPRI, the International Food Policy Research Institute, has published a paper presenting an an empirical analysis of the impact of climate change on food production in Ethiopia, a typical low-income developing country. It also provides an estimation of the determinants of adaptation to climate change and the implications of these strategies on farm productivity. The analysis relies on primary data from 1,000 farms producing cereal crops in the Nile Basin of Ethiopia. IFPRI found that climate change and climate change adaptations have significant impacts on farm productivity. Extension services (both formal and farmer to farmer), as well as access to credit and information on future climate changes, affect adaptation positively and significantly. Farm households with larger access to social capital are more likely to adopt yield-related adaptation strategies.
