Climate Change Impacts on Human Systems

Climate change affects human systems in various ways. In order to quantify these impacts and project their future evolutions, we use micro-survey data at household level to establish a relationship between temperature change and different dimensions of the livelihood of local communities in developing countries.

The results of these econometric analysis then will be used to calibrate a structural modeling framework called "Overlapping generations (OLG)" models. The OLG models ae used to show the population dynamics and human capital development in consecutive generations.

We use OLG models to project the behavior of human systems under future scenarios of climate change.
