Adaptation to Climate Variability and Change: Markets, Policy, Technology, and Information

Adaptation to Climate Variability and Change: Markets, Policy, Technology, and Information

Project Lead:  

Abstract: This project examines mechanisms for adapting to climate variability and change that include (1) the use of water markets by agriculture and urban water utilities, (2) the use of weather and climate information by agricultural producers, (3) the adoption of improved irrigation technologies, and (4) agricultural and other policy responses. The articles published as part of this project highlighted the value of special cross-tabulation data on irrigator behavior by the USDA Economic Research Service. ERS has subsequently developed and release an updated database.
