A recent study by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) estimates the economic losses from extreme climate events in Malawi. The study simulated agricultural production losses during climate events in an economywide model to assess their impacts on other parts of the economy and on household incomes and poverty in different administrative regions.
Estimating crop production losses
The economywide model's simulations draw on the findings from a World Bank study that used meteorological and hydrological models to examine past drought and flood events in Malawi. The study estimated the expected crop production losses occurring during events of different severities.
