Adaptation Can Help Mitigation: An Integrated Approach to Post-2012 Climate Policy AgEcon
Bosello, Francesco; Carraro, Carlo; De Cian, Enrica.
The latest round of international negotiations in Copenhagen led to a set of commitments on emission reductions which are unlikely to stabilise global warming below or around 2°C. As a consequence, in the absence of additional ambitious policy measures, adaptation will be needed to address climate-related damages. What is the role of adaptation in this setting? How is it optimally allocated across regions and time? To address these questions, this paper analyses the optimal mix of adaptation and mitigation expenditures in a cost-effective setting in which countries cooperate to achieve a long-term stabilisation target (550 CO2-eq). It uses an Integrated Assessment Model (AD-WITCH) that describes the relationships between different adaptation modes...

Adaptation, Mitigation and “Green” R&D to Combat Global Climate Change. Insights From an Empirical Integrated Assessment Exercise AgEcon
Bosello, Francesco.
This work develops a framework for the analysis at the macro-level of the relationship between adaptation and mitigation policies. The FEEM-RICE growth model with stock pollution, endogenous R&D investment and emission abatement is enriched with a planned-adaptation module where a defensive capital stock is built through adaptation investment. Within this framework the optimal path of planned adaptation, the optimal inter and intra temporal mix between adaptation, mitigation and investment in R&D, and the sensitivity of a strategy to each other is identified. The major conclusions of this research show that adaptation, mitigation and R&D are strategic complements as all concur together to the solution of the climate change problem; nonetheless...

Adapting agriculture to climate change AgEcon
Iglesias, Ana; Quiroga, Sonia; Diz, Agustin; Garrote, Luis.
We evaluate the potential impacts and measure the potential limits of adaptation of agriculture to climate change. Pressures on land and water resources are expected to intensify existing risks in low latitude areas – e.g., South-East Asia deltas – and in regions with current water scarcity – e.g. Mediterranean, and create new opportunities in some northern temperate areas – e.g., Northern Russia, Northern Europe. The need to respond to these risks and opportunities is addressed by evaluating the costs and benefits of a number of technical and policy actions. The discussion aims to assist stakeholders facing the adaptation challenge and develop measures to reduce the vulnerability of the sector to climate change.

Ammonia volatilization from nitrogen fertilizer formulated with biochar. Repositório Alice
PUGA, A. P.; CARVALHO, C. S.; LIGO, M. A. V.; PIRES, A. M. M.; PEREIRA NETO, B. G.; ANDRADE, C. A. de.
Ammonia (NH3) volatilization results in low N use efficiency by crops. The aim of this study were to evaluate NH3 volatilization from nitrogen fertilizer formulated (F) with biochar (BC). In a incubation experiment the fertilizers were applied to soil surface. NH3 volatilized was captured by H2SO4 solution. BC used in the production of fertilizers is from eucalyptus (charcoal fines). Two types of formulated fertilizers were tested: granulated (F6 and F8; mixture of BC, urea and additives) and coated granulated fertilizers (F17 and F19; coating of urea granule with BC, acidified or not, and additives). Treatments tested were: 1) blank; 2) control; 3) soil + urea; 4) soil + F6 (10% N, 51% BC); 5) soil + F8 (20% N, 29% BC); 6) soil + F17 (20% N, 29% BC) and...

AN ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT OF WETLAND MITIGATION IN NORTHWEST MINNESOTA AgEcon
Sip, Robert L.; Leitch, Jay A.; Meyer, Aaron J..
The economic efficiency of wetland mitigation in Minnesota's Red River Valley was examined using the Minnesota Routine Assessment Method on ten wetland case studies to rate the functions of impacted and replacement wetlands. Secondary sources were used to assign dollar values to wetland functions of impacted and replacement wetlands. Mitigation costs for projects ranged from $279 to $4,171 per acre. Estimated annual social values ranged from $207 to $1,027 per acre for impacted wetlands and from $268 to $927 per acre for replacement wetlands. Social values of replacement wetlands exceeded the social value of impacted wetlands in seven cases. Values of replacement wetlands were 1.8 to 4 times greater than the values of impacted wetlands due to 2-to-1...

Attractants for automated emission measurement (Greenfeed®) in pasture-based systems. Repositório Alice
MOMBACH, M. A.; CARVALHO, P. de; CABRAL, L. da S.; RODRIGUES, R. de A. R.; TORRES, R. C.; PEREIRA, D. H.; PEDREIRA, B. C. e.
This study aimed to evaluate the frequency and intensity of GreenFeed (GF) use by Nellore steers using different attractants in pastures of integrated systems. The attractant protein supplement and Tifton bermudagrass pelleted hay flavored with vanilla were evaluated over a period of 15 days. The pelleted hay stimulated the animals to stay longer in the equipment (24.23 s), with 8% more visits in intervals longer than 30 s in contrast to protein supplement. This indicates that pelleted hay flavored with vanilla is a potential attractant to encourage Nellore steers to visit GF in grazing systems.

Benefit Transfer: Choice Experiment Results AgEcon
Kerr, Geoffrey N.; Sharp, Basil M.H..
Benefit transfer entails using estimates of non-market values derived at one site as approximations to benefits at other sites. The method finds favour because it can be applied quickly and cheaply, however the validity of benefit transfer is frequently questioned. Published studies generally indicate that errors from the approach can be extremely large and could result in significant resource misallocations. Assessing the validity of benefit transfer is complicated by differences in the nature of study and policy sites, the changes being valued, valuation methods, time of study, availability of substitutes and complements, and demographic, social and cultural differences. A choice experiment was used to evaluate the transferability of benefit estimates...

Biodiversity offsetting and restoration under the European Union Habitats Directive: balancing between no net loss and deathbed conservation? Ecology and Society
Schoukens, Hendrik; Department of Public, European, and International Law, Ghent University, Belgium; hendrik.schoukens@ugent.be; Cliquet, An; Department of Public, European, and International Law, Ghent University, Belgium; An.Cliquet@UGent.be.
Biodiversity offsets have emerged as one of the most prominent policy approaches to align economic development with nature protection across many jurisdictions, including the European Union. Given the increased level of scrutiny that needs to be applied when authorizing economic developments near protected Natura 2000 sites, the incorporation of onsite biodiversity offsets in project design has grown increasingly popular in some member states, such as the Netherlands and Belgium. Under this approach, the negative effects of developments are outbalanced by restoration programs that are functionally linked to the infrastructure projects. However, although taking into consideration that the positive effects of onsite restoration measures leads to more leeway...

Climate Change: National and Local Policy Opportunities in China AgEcon
Teng, Fei; Gu, Alun.
Climate Change poses a wide range of potentially very severe threats in China. This aggravates the existing vulnerability of China and is one of the big challenges faced by the Chinese government. Adaptation programmes and projects are being developed and implemented at national and local level. As China is engaged in heavy investment in infrastructure development as a consequence of the rapid process of development and urbanization, mainstreaming adaptation into such development process is a priority for China. China has also made positive contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through participations in the CDM under the Kyoto Protocol framework. Although mitigation is not a priority at national or local level, it has been integrated into...

Climate Policy and the Optimal Balance between Mitigation, Adaptation and Unavoided Damage AgEcon
Bosello, Francesco; Carraro, Carlo; De Cian, Enrica.
It has become commonly accepted that a successful climate strategy should compound mitigation and adaptation. The accurate combination between adaptation and mitigation that can best address climate change is still an open question. This paper proposes a framework that integrates mitigation, adaptation, and climate change residual damages into an optimisation model. This set-up is used to provide some insights on the welfare maximising resource allocation between mitigation and adaptation, on their optimal timing, and on their marginal contribution to reducing vulnerability to climate change. The optimal mix between three different adaptation modes (reactive adaptation, anticipatory adaptation, and investment in innovation for adaptation purposes) within...

Collaborative research: Development of a manual on elasmobranch handling and release best practices in tropical tuna purse-seine fisheries ArchiMer
Poisson, Francois; Seret, Bernard; Vernet, Anne-lise; Goujon, Michel; Dagorn, Laurent.
The reduction of by-catch mortality is an objective of the ecosystem approach to fisheries and a request made by consumers. Elasmobranchs, an important component of the French tropical tuna purse seine fishery by-catch, are currently thrown back into the sea. Fishers interact with various types of elasmobranchs that range widely in size, weight and shape, and could pose various degrees of danger to the crew. A diversity of discarding practices within the fleet were reported, some practices were considered suitable, others needed to be adapted and improved and others simply had to be banned. The majority of the crews were likely to improve their handling practices if they were presented with practical suggestions that were quick and easy. Combining...

Emissions mitigation by sustainable intensification in Brazilian livestock production. Repositório Alice
SILVA, R. O.; BARIONI, L. G.; HALL, J. A. J.; MATSUURA, M. I. da S. F.; ALBERTINI, T. Z.; FERNANDES, F. A.; MORAN, D..
Reduced global meat consumption coupled with improved production efficiency is increasingly advanced as part of a sustainable agricultural intensification agenda to reduce harmful external costs, particularly direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions. We show that depending on spatial and temporal factors, reduced consumption may not offer the anticipated emission reductions. Ruminant livestock is specifically implicated as a major cause of agricultural externalities in terms of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions: direct (CH4 and N2O) and indirect (CO2 from land use change). However a counter-argument suggests that grass-fed beef systems can have significantly lower emissions when accounting for atmospheric CO2 uptake by deep-root grasses promoting soil...

Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) is primarily a market-based mechanism for achieving the effective reduction of carbon emissions from forests. Increasingly, however, concerns are being raised about the implications of REDD+ for equity, including the importance of equity for achieving effective carbon emission reductions from forests. Equity is a multifaceted concept that is understood differently by different actors and at different scales, and public discourse helps determine which equity concerns reach the national policy agenda. Results from a comparative media analysis of REDD+ public discourse in four countries show that policy makers focus more on international than national equity concerns, and that they neglect...

Insights into integrating cumulative effects and collaborative co-management for migratory tundra caribou herds in the Northwest Territories, Canada Ecology and Society
Gunn, Anne; ; gunnan@telus.net; Russell, Don; ; don.russell@ec.gc.ca; Greig, Lorne; ESSA Technologies Ltd.; lgreig@essa.com.
Globally, many migratory mammals are facing threats. In northern Canada, large annual ranges expose migratory caribou to an array of human activities, including industrial exploration and development. Recognition that responses to human activities can accumulate for caribou is long-standing, but is heightened by recent declines in caribou abundance. For example, since the mid-1990s, the Bathurst herd has declined by approximately 90%, leading to severe harvest restrictions. More mines are being proposed and developed across the herd’s annual range, raising questions about cumulative effects. Despite progress on assessment techniques, aboriginal groups are expressing strong concerns and frustration about gaps in responsibilities for who should...

Inter-Temporal Investment in Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation AgEcon
Wang, Weiwei; McCarl, Bruce A..
Currently, different dimensions of mitigation strategies have been investigated in policy analysis. However, ambitious mitigation action aiming at reducing future climate change will not prevent much climate change before mid-century. Short-term and medium-term temperature as well as associated damages cannot be avoided completely. Increasingly there appears to be recognition of the need to simultaneously implement adaptation and mitigation. However, the optimal combination between adaptation and mitigation that can best address climate change over time is still an open question. Literature base is rather small, yet very diverse and inconsistent in conclusions. In this paper, we do an exploration of the temporal optimal investment mix between adaptation...

Inverting the carbon footprint in Brazilian agriculture: an estimate of the effects of the ABC plan. Repositório Alice
MARTINS, S. C.; ASSAD, E. D.; PAVÃO, E.; LOPES-ASSAD, M. L. R. C..
The Sectoral Plan of Mitigation and Adaptation to Climate Change, drafted in order to consolidate an Economy of Low Carbon Emission in Agriculture (ABC Plan), integrates the commitments made by Brazil to mitigate its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG). The objective of this study is to estimate GHG emissions produced by the agriculture and livestock sector considering the adoption of three low carbon emission technologies (LCT) ? pasture recovery, integrated crop-livestock systems (ICLS), and integrated crop-livestock-forest systems (ICLFS). The GHG emissions were estimated considering the growth projections of the production of soybean, corn, rice, beans, cotton, wheat, sugarcane and pastures from 2012 to 2023. Two scenarios were considered: I - without...
