A systematic literature review on the impact of tropical cyclones on rice agriculture in Asia
We provide an update on the impacts of tropical cyclones on rice production in Asia. Through a systematic review of newspaper articles and humanitarian relief reports, we create a database to quantify the historical impacts of tropical cyclones on rice growing areas in Vietnam, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Philippines and Thailand. These countries are major rice producers and are frequently affected by tropical cyclones. We present preliminary results from our work in Vietnam and elaborate on future work related to the completion of our database.
