Abstract

Rising levels of global rainfall will be a key channel through which farmers in developing countries are exposed to climate change. As this column explains, it is essential for policy-makers to recognize the potential risks to farmers’ incomes from such changing weather patterns. These research findings have important implications for how we measure the impact of environmental shocks on agriculture.
