The impacts of climate change on French agricultural productivity

This paper analyzes the impact of changes in stochastic climatic variables on a sample of French agricultural farms between 1990 and 2000. We quantify the productivity impact by decomposing productivity changes over time via nonparametric productivity accounting. This method provides an empirical nonparametric measure of the impact of climate variables on production, a measure of technological change and a measure of efficiency change.
