Much of New Zealand’s public wastewater and stormwater systems were not designed for the challenges climate change will bring, from sea level rises to the predicted changes in precipitation frequency and intensity.
Using over 5,000 observations on house sales in Wellington, New Zealand, this paper looks at the willingness to pay for an extra daily hour of sun, on average, across the year.
This paper provides an analysis of how the New Zealand tax system may be affecting residential property markets.
We update the analysis of Allan et al. (2015) and re-examine whether New Zealand households have become greener consumers using newly available data. We combine input-output data from 2006 and 2012 with detailed data on household consumption from the 2006 and 2012 Household Economic Surveys...
The science is clear. When debating emissions, consider your goals.
Biological emissions from agriculture (methane and nitrous oxide) make up almost half New Zealand’s total greenhouse gas emissions, so their importance relative to carbon dioxide is of particular policy interest. Motu Economic and Public...
Farmers change slowly Avoid pain with clear signals Research; replace cows.
This paper explores how New Zealand should address agricultural greenhouse gas emissions: methane and nitrous oxide. The starting point is the internationally agreed-upon goal of limiting global warming to below two degrees, and...
In contrast to most economic drivers of land-use change, climate-related drivers display substantial geographic variation. Accounting for this spatial heterogeneity is important in simulations of the land-use response to climate change. I use a discrete choice model to estimate the relationship between pasture yields and...
The New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS) presents an opportunity to compare the theory of linked emissions trading with practice. From 2009 until late 2012 New Zealand was linked to the Kyoto market and there was no indication that this link would be broken....
Ruminating on Methane. Land use will change and Someone’s gotta pay.
I use simulations from the Land Use in Rural New Zealand model to consider mitigation for different classes of sheep-beef farms under climate policy. Farmers in...
Productivity has risen. Thank entry and reallocation.
The construction industry contributes a large and growing share of the New Zealand economy, with total employment rising to almost 10% and value added (GDP contribution) rising to about 9%...
