Speaker Profile:

Introduction:
    The first level of climate change impacts is the natural impact on agricultural, coastal and ecological subsystems (crop yields, submerged areas, etc.), and the second level is socioeconomic impact on food safety, economic growth and social welfare. In recent years, the impact of the second level has attracted much attention. In order to assess the socio-economic impacts of climate change, agriculture, for example, we need to address how to build a loss function of climate change impacts on agriculture from the results of many natural science models, and how to develop climate change natural impacts based on the Climate Change Comprehensive Assessment Model (IAM) to socioeconomic level.
