Sensitivity of Carbon Emission Estimates from Indirect Land-Use Change

  title={Sensitivity of Carbon Emission Estimates from Indirect Land-Use Change},
  author={J{\'e}r{\^o}me Dumortier and Dermot J. Hayes and Miguel Carriquiry and Fengxia Dong and Xiaodong Du and Amani Elobeid and Jacinto F. Fabiosa},
We analyze the sensitivity of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from land-use change to modifications in assumptions concerning crop area, yield, and deforestation. For this purpose, we run a modified version of the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD) Agricultural Outlook Model, which was used previously to assess the impacts of energy price increases and biofuel policy changes on land conversion. To calculate the GHG implications of agricultural activity, we use GreenAgSiM, a… CONTINUE READING
