Athula Senaratne Discusses the Impact of Climate Change on the Economy
17 July 2018
Climate change is a gradual process and the economic impacts are felt in the long-term; as a result, Sri Lanka’s understanding and preparedness to face these slow-onset impacts are relatively low, pointed out IPS Research Fellow, Athula Senaratne, recently. He also stressed that the agriculture sector, and farmers in particular, feel these impacts more intensely, as their livelihood is directly connected to the climate.
He was discussing the importance of environmental economics on ‘Biz 1st In Focus’, broadcast over TV1 (formerly MTV Sports), on 17 July 2018.
