dc.description.abstractExtreme climate events are increasing the susceptibility of children's health and nutrition. This study focuses on the link between varying levels of precipitation and temperature and the occurrence of child undernutrition in Ethiopia. By combining data from nationwide demographic and health surveys with hourly weather observations of a high-resolution geographic scale, the study reveals that experiencing dry weather is linked to an 8 percent rise in stunting levels. Additionally, exposure to higher temperatures is associated with a 13 percent increase in wasting levels. Furthermore, the study offers suggestive evidence that highlights agriculture and infectious diseases as the primary pathways connecting different weather exposures to child undernutrition.en_US
