Weather Shocks and Agricultural Commercialization in Colonial Tropical Africa: Did Export Crops Alleviate Social Distress?

Papaioannou, Kostadis LU (2017)
Abstract
In this study we investigate the impact of weather shocks on social distress in British colonial Africa (1920-39). We find that weather extremes resulted in higher levels of distress and that agricultural commercialization partially mitigated this effect.
