Jesus Arellano Gonzalez

Economics Researcher at

Banco de México

I am an Economics Researcher at Banco de México. I hold a PhD in Agricultural and Resource Economics from the University of California, Davis. My fields of specialization are environmental, development and applied economics. My research seeks to improve the understanding we have about the potential effects of climate change in the agriculture of developing countries by analyzing its effects on productivity and welfare as well as potential avenues of adaptation.

In my Job Market Paper, I elicit the role that irrigation could play as an adaptive strategy using the case of Maize production in Mexico as setting. My other research touches on topics such as water economics, migration, property rights, poverty and policy evaluation.

Before Banco de México, I was a public officer at FND. I have also been a consultant for the World Bank and the International Food Policy and Research Institute.
