Sonia – “Impact of Climate Change on Agricultural Output: Evidence from Pakistan” – PhD Seminar
Global warming is a major ecological concern of the 21st century. The increasing trends in climate change over the past few decades have immensely affected the agricultural sector, as agricultural output is heavily dependent on variation in weather and climate. Based on this notion, I am looking into the impact of climate change on agricultural output over time. where the agricultural output is the production of five major crops, namely Wheat, maize, rice, cotton and sugarcane of Pakistan. The type of data used for this study is panel data, which is comprised of the cross-sectional data on the production of crops and time series data on the climate variables i.e. minimum temperature, maximum temperature and rainfall from 1981 to 2018. A production function approach will be applied for analyzing the impacts of climate change on the production of major crops.
