Abstract

Our objective in this special issue is twofold. First, we emphasize the importance of comprehending that the global impacts of climate change notwithstanding, there are salient region-specific impacts that vary across space. Second, given this observation, we show how rigorous modeling of the connections between climate change and (i) land use changes, (ii) forestry, (iii) infrastructure, and (iv) local labor markets sheds light on a variety of climate change induced spatial economic effects. Following this introductory paper, there are seven additional papers in this special issue. Each of these papers discusses a particular research question at the interface of what we call “climate change and space.”
