    Determinants of African farmers’ strategies for adapting to climate change: multinomial choice analysis

    African Association of Agricultural Economists, 2008

This study analyses determinants of farm-level climate adaptation measures in Africa using a multinomial choice model fitted to data from a cross-sectional survey of over 8000 farms from 11 African countries.

    Crop switching as a strategy for adapting to climate change

    African Association of Agricultural Economists, 2008
    This paper examines the impact of climate change on primary crops grown in Africa. An innovative approach is presented that bridges the gap between agro-economic and traditional Ricardian models, labelled by the authors as a ‘Structural Ricardian model’. It first captures the type of crop a farmer will select and then examines the conditional net revenue of that crop.
