Climate Risk and Climate Adaptation

 

We face climate change that may lead to increasing climate risks in form of droughts and floods in addition to increasing temperatures.

 

  • How is climate risk, shocks and risk preferences affecting technology adoption in agriculture?
  • Can we identify more climate-smart technologies and enhance their dissemination?
  • Which policies are more efficient in enhancing dissemination of more climate-smart technologies?
  • ?
