Abstract/Summary

In Cambodia, two thirds of the population are economically dependent on agriculture and most farmers are poorly equipped to adapt to climate change. Because of international linkages through trade and prices, any complete analysis of the potential domestic effects of climate change must consider impacts on a global scale. This paper highlights a set of model projections for global food prices and production, and trade and food security outcomes for mainland Southeast Asia, and reports projections of global rice and maize prices, commodities critical to Cambodia’s food security and agricultural trade. In all cases examined, climate change will negatively impact on food security outcomes in the region.
