The impact of climate change in a developing country: A case study from mali Chapter uri icon

abstract

  • © 2005 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Greenhouse gas-induced climate change may worsen climatic conditions in many developing countries. Rosenzweig and Iglesias (1994) argue that in low-latitude regions, where most of the developing world is located, crop yields are likely to be hard hit by climate change. However, information on the economic consequences of such shifts remains sparse (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC], 2001). This chapter provides an economically based climate change impact assessment for the Malian agricultural sector, highlighting food security implications.
