Project Description

Global Warming and Agriculture. Estimations of regional marginal abatement cost curves and modelling of tradable emission permits in a European context


Objective:
The main objective of this research project is to measure at a regional level climate relevant emissions coming from agriculture and to simulate the implementation of a tradable emission permit system for Europe based on marginal abatement costs at a regional level.


Description:
This PhD Project is embedded in the CAP-STRAT European Project. By fixing a certain environmental objective for the European Agricultural Sector on a Kyoto Protocol basis (as an additional restriction in the model), marginal abatement costs are generated at a regional level. Trade allowance of emission permits between regions would than head to an optimal agri-environmental policy. This analysis should quantify the principal determinants in pollution abatement (such as production-mix and production technologies) and minimise the different
abatement costs per region. At an aggregated level the cost of an optimal abatement strategy can be calculated and the effectiveness and political acceptability of a tradable emission permit system for agriculture analysed. The expected analytical result is a consistent estimation of marginal abatement cost curves per region and welfare gains derived from the use of a market-based economic instrument in global warming abatement.
