This paper describes the policy changes to the New Zealand emissions trading scheme (ETS) since 2008 that directly affect forestry; assesses the effectiveness of the scheme; explores who is benefiting from it; and outlines issues facing forestry in the ETS moving forward.
This document outlines an integrated proposal for managing unit supply and prices in the ETS. Its objective is to generate a more predictable long-term emission price signal to guide efficient domestic de-carbonisation and cost-effectively manage New Zealand’s overall contribution to global emission reductions.
This report is the first national assessment of the indirect impacts of the NPS-FM on New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).
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...
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....
Land is an important social and economic resource. Knowing the spatial distribution of land use and the expected location of future land-use change is important to inform decision makers. This paper documents and validates the baseline land-use maps and the algorithm for spatial...
Recent news reports about different aspects of the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS) have proven wrong the well-worn saying that there’s no such thing as bad publicity. The government’s First Biennial Report to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (8408) indicated that...
This paper presents the results of simulations using the integrated Land Use in Rural New Zealand model to analyse the effect of various New Zealand emissions trading scheme scenarios on land-use, emissions, and output in a temporally and spatially explicit manner.
It compares the...
The drivers of land-use decisions are complex, and models provide a structured methodology for investigating these. For the public and private sectors to make robust land-use decisions under uncertainty, high-quality modelling tools and data are essential.
