"Economic Impacts of Climate Change-Driven Crop Yields and Shifting Land-Use"
by Beckman, Jayson and Maros Ivanic

An increase in global temperatures and extreme weather events, along with rising greenhouse gas emissions has led to an interest in better understanding the potential impacts of a changing climate on agriculture. While promoting agricultural output growth is critical to feeding the world, this will require significant agricultural inputs when productivity growth is stagnant or cannot keep pace with the growing output demand. A major focus of the literature is the impacts of climate change on agricultural productivity (such as from yields), as they, along with acreage planted, help to determine farm income, food security, and export opportunities. Many studies (e.g., Challinor et al., 2014; Porter et al., 2019; Zhao et al., 2017) conclude that rising temperatures will harm global crop yields. In addition, a changing climate also has the potential to impact the other aspect of agricultural production--acreage planted, through changes in land-type the productivity of that land. The purpose of this paper is to examine how climate change might impact yields and acreage planted using a computable general equilibrium model (GTAP).
