The Black River Morass: Valuing Ecosystem Services in a Ramsar Protected Area

Authors: Maurice Mason
Abril, 2013

Abstract:
This paper aims to assess the long-term effects of global climate change on Brazilian agriculture. In particular, it will address the following questions: (i) What are the long-term effects of global climate change in terms of land values in the distinct Brazilian biomes?; and (ii) do these effects differ according to farm size? In order to answer these questions, the hedonic approach proposed by Mendelsohn et al. (1994) is estimated for Brazilian municipalities.

Input-Output Subsystems: Agro-Industrial CH4 and Services CO2 Emissions in Uruguay

 

Author: Matías Piaggio, Vicent Alcántara, Emilio Padilla 

2013

Abstract:

This paper analyzes methane emissions of the agro-industrial subsystem and carbon dioxide emissions of the services sectors subsystem in Uruguay in 2004. The relationship of these subsystems with the rest of the economy is analyzed through input–output methodology employing a multiplicative decomposition. This is combined with an additive decomposition for the study of the linkages within them. This approach allows us to study the importance of these subsystems as units in the economic structure as well as to analyze in detail the relationship between the different branches in each of the subsystems. The results depict in which sectors mitigation policies are more effective, and if they would be better tackled through technical improvements and better practices, or through demand policies.
