Performance of rain-fed Aman rice yield in Bangladesh in the presence of climate change

This paper uses the framework of the Just–Pope production function to evaluate the impacts of climate change on yields of the rainfed Aman rice crop in Bangladesh. It analyses disaggregated district-level data on climate variables and Aman rice yield over a 48 year time horizon. The results reveal that changes in maximum temperatures have had.. Read More


Exploring the relationship between climate change and rice yield in Bangladesh: An analysis of time series data

This study examines the relationship between the yield of three major rice crops (e.g., Aus, Aman and Boro) and three main climate variables (e.g., maximum temperature, minimum temperature and rainfall) for Bangladesh. We use time series data for the 1972–2009 period at an aggregate level to assess the relationship between climate variables and rice yield.. Read More

Assessing the effects of climate change on rice yields: An econometric investigation using Bangladeshi panel data

Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change in the world. Using the Just-Pope production function as an analytical framework, this study assesses the impacts of climate variables on the mean and variability in yield of three major rice crops: Aus, Aman and Boro in Bangladesh for the period 1972–2009. The results.. Read More
