Modelling GHG mitigation measures and their economic effects in Austrian agriculturein: 33. Jahrestagung der Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Agrarökonomie
Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in all sectors – including agriculture – is key to reach the ambitious European and national climate targets. We analyse four mitigation scenarios with increasing efforts to reduce GHG emissions from agriculture. The mitigation scenari-os were developed in a stakeholder process and combine several newly implemented and currently developed policies, agronomic and (socio-) economic developments. By applying three quantitative models, we analyse their effects on (i) agricultural production activities, (ii) agri-cultural GHG emissions, and (iii) the national economy (i.e., gross value added) and employment. The model results show that a significant reduction in GHG emis-sions comes with a significant reduction in agricultural production.
