The Department of Development and Sustainability is pleased to invite you to the Special Lecture titled Econometric modeling of climate change effect on crop yield: Use of Just and Pope and ARDL Models by post-doctoral Fellow Dr. Feroze Sheikh, the Agricultural Economist by training and teaches at the Department of Agricultural Economics, College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, India. He obtained Ph.D. from National Dairy Research Institute, India.

Abstract

Food production primarily depends on area under cultivation and crop yield. As the cultivable land area is difficult to extend crop yield is the variable of interest to the scientists and policy makers vis-à-vis food security under the climate change regime. Understanding the relationship between the crop yield and various climatic factors is the first step in climate adaptation process. Various modelling approaches are used by the scientific community to fit these variables into different models. Econometric modelling is one of the alternatives available to the researchers. This session will focus on Just and Pope Model and ARDL Model. The first half of the session will be on the theoretical backdrop of these models and it will be followed by hands-on exposure using hypothetical data.
