This report provides estimates of the lignite industry's contribution to the North Dakota economy, using key economic indicators
such as retail trade activity, personal income, total business activity, employment, and tax revenues. The estimates are based on
actual industry expenditures for 2003 and projected expenditures for 2004. This analysis contains two measures of the relative
importance of the lignite energy industry in North Dakota. First, the industry's share of the state's total sales to final demand (or
exports) is evaluated. Second, the business volume generated by the industry is compared to the total gross business volume for
the state. Expenditures were obtained from a survey of firms involved in lignite-related activities (mining or...

Determinants of African farmers’ strategies for adapting to climate change: Multinomial choice
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Hassan,
Rashid M.; Nhemachena,
This study analyzed determinants of farm-level climate adaptation measures in Africa using a multinomial choice model fitted to
data from a cross-sectional survey of over 8000 farms from 11 African countries. The results indicate that specialized crop
cultivation (mono-cropping) is the agricultural practice most vulnerable to climate change in Africa. Warming, especially in
summer, poses the highest risk. It encourages irrigation, multiple cropping and integration of livestock. Increased precipitation
reduces the probability of irrigation and will benefit most African farms, especially in drier areas. Better access to markets,
extension and credit services, technology and farm assets (labor, land and capital) are critical for helping African farmers adapt...
