Abstract

We assess the impact of extreme variations in rainfalls on consumer prices and agricultural economic activity during the period of 2000 - 2016. Using historical records on rainfall at national level and time series techniques, we identify important effects of droughts over price dynamics and moderate effects on agricultural value added growth. Relative to the events of rainfall excess, we find evidence of a relevant negative effect on sectorial value added, nevertheless we do not observe any significant influence on food prices.
