Greenhouse gas mitigation in land use - measuring economic potential.

  title={Greenhouse gas mitigation in land use - measuring economic potential.},
  author={Dominic Moran and Kimberley Pratt},
INTRODUCTION As noted in other sections the global technical mitigation potential of agriculture, excluding fossil fuel, offsets from biomass is around 5.5–6 Gt CO2eq/year. This can be delivered through a range of technically effective measures that can be deployed in a variety of farm and land-use systems. These measures can be deployed at varying cost, including a range of ancillary environmental and social costs and benefits that need to be taken into account when moving to some… 
Developing climate-smart livestock systems in Inner Mongolia, China
‘Climate-smart’ is the term coined to define agricultural systems that are resilient to climate change, and offer efficient emissions mitigation potential without compromising on productivity, food

Although there are different opinions on climate variability and global warming, it is a common idea in all hypotheses that water will become even more scarce. The water used in the production of
Drip irrigated paddy : An adaptation strategy to mitigate the climate change
A field experiment was conducted at Tamil Nadu Rice Research Institute, Aduthurai to quantify the greenhouse gases (CH4, CO2 and N2O gas flux) emission in drip irrigated paddy in comparison with


Developing carbon budgets for UK agriculture, land-use, land-use change and forestry out to 2022
This paper derives a notional future carbon budget for UK agriculture, land use, land use change and forestry sectors (ALULUCF). The budget is based on a bottom-up marginal abatement cost curve
Methane and Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Agriculture in the EU: A Spatial Assessment of Sources and Abatement Costs
Agriculture significantly contributes to emissions of greenhouse gases in the EU. By using a farm-type, supply-side oriented, linear-programming model of the European agriculture, the baseline levels
Evaluating the cost-effectiveness of global biochar mitigation potential
Bio-char Sequestration in Terrestrial Ecosystems – A Review
The application of bio-char (charcoal or biomass-derived black carbon (C)) to soil is proposed as a novel approach to establish a significant, long-term, sink for atmospheric carbon dioxide in
The Social Cost of Carbon and the Shadow Price of Carbon: what they are, and how to use them in economic appraisal in the UK
This paper sets out: - a definition of the social cost of carbon, hitherto used in UK government appraisals to reflect the external costs of greenhouse gas emissions; - the rationale for adopting a
Analysis of post-Kyoto CO₂ emissions trading using marginal abatement curves
Marginal abatement curves (MACs) are often used heuristically to demonstrate the advantages of emissions trading. In this paper, the authors derive MACs from EPPA, the MIT Joint Program’s computable
Biochar as a Soil Amendment: A Review of the Environmental Implications
The term 'biochar' refers to black carbon formed by the pyrolysis of biomass i.e. by heating biomass in an oxygen-free or low oxygen environment such that it does not (or only partially) combusts.
Reduction of Energy Consumption and Corresponding Emissions in Thai Residential Sector by Improved Cooking Stoves, Family Biogas Digesters and Improved Charcoal-making Kilns Options
The renewable energy used for reducing the final energy consumption and corresponding environmental emissions in the residential sector of Thailand are investigated in terms of energy saving,
