Households depend upon food prices, incomes, and disease burdens that impact the ability to use consumed food. Climate change and extreme temperatures impact all of these factors. In this talk, David Lobell focuses on the impact of heat in growing regions that are important for food prices. He reviews recent research on heat impacts and discusses whether crop yields are becoming more or less sensitive to heat.
