Parry and Rosenzweig 1993

Parry, M.L., and C. Rosenzweig, 1993: Food supply and risk of hunger. Lancet, 342, 1345-1347.

We provide here an evaluation of the potential effect of climate change, induced by greenhouse gases, on food production and the number of people at risk of hunger due to such changes. This is a modelling exercise, starting with existing models of climate change itself, then how crop yields might respond under those different scenarios and then assimilating the economic consequences of those yields in the world food trade model. This global study is being coordinated by the US Environmental Protection Agency and scientists in twenty-five countries took part.
