Effects of climate change on combined labour productivity and supply: an empirical, multi-model study
Our empirical multi-model study discusses the effects of climate change on combined labour productivity and supply. Although effects on labour is one of the most tangible and attributable climate impact, our quantification of these effects is insufficient and based on weak methodologies.
Partly, this gap is due to the inability to resolve different impact channels, such as changes in time allocation (labour supply) and slowdown of work (labour productivity). Explicitly resolving those in a multi-model inter-comparison framework can help to improve estimates of the effects of climate change on labour effectiveness.
