Guidelines for cost-effective agri-environmental policy measures( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Improving the environmental performance of agriculture is a high priority in OECD and many non-OECD countries. This will be of increasing concern in the future given the pressure to feed a growing world population with scarce land and water resources. Policy has an important role to play where markets for many of the environmental outcomes from agriculture are absent or poorly functioning. This study focuses on the design and implementation of environmental standards and regulations, taxes, payments and tradeable permit schemes to address agri-environmental issues. It deals with the choice of policy instruments and the design of specific instruments, with the aim of identifying those that are most cost-effective in very different situations across OECD countries. Key conclusions from the study are that: there is no unique instrument that promises to achieve all agri-environmental policy goals; the cost effectiveness of payments systems could be improved by using performance-based measures; and policy mixes need to combine policy instruments that complement and not conflict with each other.--Publisher's description
Environmental Co-benefits and Stacking in Environmental Markets by Jussi Lankoski( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper investigates farmers' incentives to participate voluntarily in carbon offset markets when environmental credit stacking is allowed, that is, farmers can stack water quality credits with carbon credits. The implications of stacking on additionality of environmental services in interlinked markets, market participation rates, and market equilibrium prices are analysed by developing a conceptual framework of environmental credit stacking, which is applied with data estimates for the US Corn Belt. Analysis shows that credit stacking increases farmers' participation in carbon offset markets, and that such increased participation provides additionality in environmental service provision. It is further shown that ecosystem markets are interlinked so that credit price changes in one market will shift credit supply in another market, thus affecting equilibrium prices. Empirical application of the framework shows that provision of CO2-eq offsets through reductions of nitrogen application or through the establishment of green set-asides is not profitable without water quality credits. A conversion from conventional tillage and reduced tillage to no-till is profitable in some cases, although current low carbon offset prices and transaction costs have a significant negative impact on the number of participating parcels. When farmers are allowed to stack water quality credits the profitability of carbon sequestration practices increases. Reduced nitrogen application levels becomes a profitable option and 21% of field parcels - representing 4.6 million acres- participate in the market with water quality credit prices at base levels of USD 3/lb for N and USD 4/lb for P. The establishment of green set-aside and streamside buffer strips becomes profitable in the lower productivity and highly erodible lands with base prices of nutrient credits. If water quality trading markets are small then high participation rates among farmers may result in an oversupply of nutrient credits and as a consequence equilibrium credit prices and farmers' credit revenue would decrease

A comparative study of risk management in agriculture under climate change( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change affects the mean and variability of weather conditions and the frequency of extreme events, which to a great extent determines the variability of production and yields. This paper reviews the scientific literature on the impacts of climate change on yield variance and investigates their implications for the demand of crop insurance and effectiveness of different farm strategies and policy measures using crop farm data in Australia, Canada and Spain. A microeconomic farm level model is calibrated to different types of farms and used to simulate the responses and impacts of four policy measures: ex post disaster payments and three types of crop insurance (individual yields, area-based yield and weather index). The strong uncertainties about climate change are captured in a set of seven scenarios covering different assumptions about the scope of climate change (no change, marginal change, and high occurrence of extreme events), and farmers' adaptation response (no adaptation, diversification, and structural adaptation). Policy decision making under these uncertainties is analysed using a standard Bayesian probabilistic approach, but also using other criteria that look for robust second best choices (MaxiMin and Satisficing criteria)
Cost-Effectiveness of Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Measures for Agriculture by Michael MacLeod( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews the international literature on the cost-effectiveness of supply-side mitigation measures that can reduce the emissions intensity of agriculture while maintaining or increasing production. Sixty-five recent international studies of cost-effectiveness covering 181 individual activities are reviewed. Nine case studies of well covered mitigation measures, generally using a cost-engineering approach, illustrate significant differences in the cost-effectiveness of measures across countries and studies, in part due to contextual differences. Although caution needs to be exercised in comparing heterogeneous studies, the results suggest that measures based on fertiliser use efficiency, cattle breeding, and potentially improving energy efficiency in mobile machinery, are often considered highly cost-effective mitigation measures across countries. A preliminary overview of policy highlights the existence of a range of options to encourage the adoption of cost-effective measures, from information to incentive-based policies. Further analysis is needed to address remaining estimation challenges and to help determine how mitigation measures may be embedded into broader climate, agricultural and environmental policy frameworks
Alternative payment approaches for biodiversity conservation in agriculture by Jussi Lankoski( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biodiversity conservation and sustainable use policies implemented in OECD countries could be made more environmentally effective and cost-effective. Several policy innovations could change this, however. To test this, a theoretical framework was developed to describe farmers{u2019} participation in government payment programmes that enhance semi-natural wildlife habitats on farmland. The types of payments analysed here include: uniform payments; three types of conservation auctions with environmental targeting; uniform payment with environmental targeting; and two types of differentiated payments with environmental targeting. Quantitative results show that uniform payments are less efficient than other payment types, and that auctions with environmental targeting are the most cost-effective option. However, if farmers have knowledge of the environmental value of their offer, the cost-effectiveness of auctions decreases because they tend to increase their bids to benefit from this information rent (overcompensating income forgone). Adding environmental targeting to the uniform payment policy greatly improves the cost-effectiveness of uniform payment. The analysis clearly shows that, when targeted payments are implemented, the gains from environmental targeting are large and exceed the increase in policy-related transaction costs

Rapport Coût Efficacité des Mesures d'Atténuation des Émissions de Gaz à Effet de Serre en Agriculture : Examen des Travaux Publiés( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce document livre un examen des travaux publiés à l'échelle internationale sur le rapport coût-efficacité des mesures axées sur l'offre qui permettent de réduire l'intensité des émissions de gaz à effet de serre agricoles en préservant ou renforçant la production. La présente étude analyse 65 études internationales récentes consacrées au rapport coût-efficacité de mesures agricoles d'atténuation, qui couvrent 181 activités différentes. Neuf études de cas de mesures d'atténuation largement appliquées illustrent, en général à partir d'une méthode d'estimation ascendante des coûts, les différences significatives du rapport coût-efficacité des mesures entre les pays et les études, dues en partie à des différences contextuelles. Les comparaisons entre ces études hétérogènes doivent être appréhendées avec toute la circonspection voulue, mais les résultats suggèrent que les mesures reposant sur l'efficience d'utilisation des engrais et l'amélioration génétique du bétail, ainsi que les possibilités d'amélioration de l'efficacité énergétique des engins et machines agricoles, sont considérées comme des solutions d'atténuation hautement performantes en terme de coût-efficacité dans les différents pays. Un premier examen des mesures publiques montre qu'il existe différentes solutions possibles pour encourager l'adoption de mesures économes et efficaces, allant de campagnes d'information à des stratégies d'incitation. Il convient d'approfondir l'analyse pour surmonter les difficultés d'estimation restantes et trouver comment les mesures d'atténuation peuvent s'inscrire dans le cadre plus vaste des stratégies climatiques, agricoles et environnementales
Lignes directrices pour des mesures agroenvironnementales efficaces by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'amelioration de la performance environnementale de l'agriculture est une priorite dans les pays de l'OCDE et dans de nombreux pays non membres de l'OCDE. Elle sera une preoccupation croissante a l'avenir etant donne les pressions qui s'exerceront pour nourrir une population mondiale en augmentation avec des ressources en terres et en eau limitees. Les politiques ont un role important a jouer lorsque les marches sont inexistants ou fonctionnent mal pour de nombreux resultats environnementaux de l'agriculture. L'etude porte sur la conception et la mise en uvre de normes et reglementations environnementales, d'ecotaxes, de paiements environnementaux et de systemes de permis negociables pour traiter les problemes agroenvironnementaux. Elle aborde la question du choix des instruments d'action et de la conception d'instruments specifiques, dans le but d'identifier ceux qui sont les plus efficaces par rapport a leur cout dans des situations tres differentes d'un pays de l'OCDE a l'autre. Les conclusions fondamentales qui se degagent de cette etude sont qu'il n'existe pas d'instrument particulier qui laisse les pouvoirs publics esperer atteindre tous les objectifs agroenvironnementaux ; que l'efficacite des dispositifs de paiement pourrait etre amelioree en ayant recours a des mesures fondees sur les resultats ; et qu'il est necessaire que les combinaisons d'instruments comportent des instruments de politique qui se completent et ne soient pas incompatibles
