Air Emissions of Ammonia and Methane from Livestock Operations: Valuation and Policy Options AgEcon
Shih, Jhih-Shyang; Burtraw, Dallas; Palmer, Karen L.; Siikamaki, Juha.
The animal husbandry industry is a major emitter of methane, which is an important greenhouse gas. The industry is also a major emitter of ammonia, which is a precursor of fine particulate matter, arguably the number-one environment-related public health threat facing the nation. We present an integrated process model of the engineering economics of technologies to reduce methane and ammonia emissions at dairy operations in California. Three policy options are explored: greenhouse gas offset credits for methane control, particulate matter offset credits for ammonia control, and expanded net metering policies to provide revenue for the sale of electricity generated from captured methane gas. Individually, any of these policies appears to be sufficient to...

Calculating the Costs of Environmental Regulation AgEcon
Pizer, William A.; Kopp, Raymond J..
Decisions concerning environmental protection hinge on estimates of economic burden. Over the past 30 years, economists have developed and applied various tools to measure this burden. In this paper, developed as a chapter for the Handbook of Environmental Economics, we present a taxonomy of costs along with methods for measuring those costs. At the broadest level, we distinguish between partial and general equilibrium costs. Partial equilibrium costs represent the burden directly borne by the regulated entity (firms, households, government), including both pecuniary and nonpecuniary expenses, when prices are held constant. General equilibrium costs reflect the net burden once all good and factor markets have equilibrated. In addition to partial...

Copper Mining and Environmental Costs in Dominica AgEcon
Harris-Charles, Emaline L.; Pemberton, Carlisle A..
A proposal from an international mining company to establish a copper mining operation in the Caribbean island of Dominica could be highly favourable, given the potential for financial benefits associated with such a project. On the downside, such projects are often associated with environmental damage. The area targeted for this copper mine was a rainforest in the north-eastern portion of Dominica occupying around 12 percent of the island’s total land area. A critical question is therefore whether copper mining could be a viable alternative to agrarian uses of the targeted area, if both financial and environmental costs are taken into consideration. A Contingent Valuation Survey of Dominicans and Visitors allowed for inclusion of non-market costs...

Cost-Benefit Analysis and Regulatory Reform: An Assessment of the Science and the Art AgEcon
Kopp, Raymond J.; Krupnick, Alan J.; Toman, Michael.
The continuing efforts in the 104th Congress to legislate requirements for cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and the revised Office of Management and Budget guidelines for the conduct of such assessments during a regulatory rulemaking process highlight the need for a comprehensive examination of the role that CBA can play in agency decision-making. This paper summarizes the state of knowledge regarding CBA and offers suggestions for improvement in its use, especially in the context of environmental regulations.

Cost-benefit analysis of sheep and goat brucellosis vaccination with Rev.1 in the north of Portugal from 2000 to 2005 Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec.
Coelho,A.M; Pinto,M.L; Coelho,A.C.
In the North of Portugal, a mass vaccination programme of small ruminants was conducted from 2001 to 2004. A study of cost-benefit was carried out for the 2000/2005 period to ascertain the economic benefits of this strategy. In order to estimate the cost of the zoonosis, the compensation costs paid to farmers for culled animals in the Brucellosis Eradication Campaign, data from vaccine Rev. 1 costs, and costs of people internment due to brucellosis were studied. An increase in the cost was observed from 2000 to 2001 (aproximately US$ 110,000), essentially due to compensation for culled animals, but also from vaccination and human internment costs. However, a progressive decrease was observed from 2001 to 2004 (from more than US$1,200,000 in 2001 to...

COST-BENEFIT AND STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF FUNGICIDES FOR SUPPRESSION OF FUSARIUM HEAD BLIGHT (SCAB) IN HARD RED SPRING WHEAT IN 1997 AgEcon
Haugen, Ronald H.; Aakre, Dwight G..
A cost-benefit and statistical analysis of fungicides for suppression of fusarium head blight (scab) in hard red spring wheat was completed on data from physical experiments done in Fargo and Carrington, North Dakota in 1997. Various fungicide data were analyzed by applying revenues and costs to the experiment yields to determine net revenue. The net revenues were analyzed statistically using a one-way ANOVA (analysis of variance). No statistical difference was found between the control and other treatment with the Fargo data. There was a statistical difference between the control and other treatments with the Carrington data. The data sets were combined and analyzed; location proved to be a significant factor.

Costs and Benefits of Two Alternative Salmonella Control Policies in Finnish Broiler Production AgEcon
Kangas, Susanna; Lyytikainen, Tapani; Peltola, Jukka; Ranta, Jukka; Maijala, Riitta.
In this study, costs and benefits of two Salmonella control options in broiler production were compared. The first option was to control Salmonella as set by Council Directive 92/117/EEC, so-called Zoonosis Directive. The second option was more intense control programme, the so-called Finnish Salmonella control programme. The costs of controlling Salmonella in primary and secondary production and the direct and indirect losses due to Salmonella infection in humans in both options were compared. The national control option was found to be economically feasible. One prevented loss of life covered all the control costs of the national programme.

Fiducial cost-benefit analysis research: with an application to weather modification AgEcon
Beare, Stephen; Chambers, Raymond.
Environmental intervention is often seen as being high risk and high return. Traditional scientific hypothesis testing provides limited guidance to policy makers unless there is a high level of certainty in the supporting scientific evidence. Traditional cost-benefit analysis under uncertainty has shortcomings when considering high-risk investment, largely due to the choice of how to discount uncertainty outcomes. A corollary is that traditional cost-benefit analysis does not place a value on increased certainty, an important outcome of successful scientific research. A fiducial costbenefit methodology is presented in this paper, which integrates hypothesis testing and traditional cost-benefit analysis. The fiducial approach is one way of objectively...

Good Industry-good Investments AgEcon
Greer, Glen; Zwart, Tony.
New Zealand primary sector industry approaches to industry-good investment, and the approaches to evaluation reported in the literature were reviewed to provide understanding of the key issues in ensuring such investments meet stakeholder needs. The extent to which planning and evaluation processes are linked to achievement of measurable industry objectives varies widely amongst primary sector industries, reflecting differing industry sizes and resource levels. Although these factors inevitably influence investment opportunities and the resources available for planning and monitoring profoundly, a framework has been developed to accommodate these differences, and to be of value to all industries.

Hepatitis A: the costs and benefits of the disease prevention by vaccine, Paraná, Brazil BJID
Zahdi,Mariana Ribas; Maluf Junior,Ivan; Maluf,Eliane Mara Cesário Pereira.
This study evaluated the epidemiological behavior of the hepatitis A in Paraná state and compared the costs of the disease and the vaccination. This is an epidemiological descriptive study including a pharmacoeconomy analysis. We collected information in the national database reported cases (SINAN), in the mortality information system (SIM) and in the hospital information system (AIH) among 2000/2003 (Paraná State Public Health Department). We estimated the probability of one cohort of children to acquire hepatitis A during their lifetime and the costs with their treatment. We compared those costs with the cost of vaccinating the children. 14,682 hepatitis A cases were registered during the period studied, and 12,102 (82.4%) occurred in the 0-15 years-old...
