GHG MITIGATION POLICY OPTIONS FOR EU AGRICULTUREBrussels Daily
Study: “An economic assessment of GHG mitigation policy options for EU agriculture (EcAMPA)”
Technical report – January 2015
The report presents an overview of the historical and projected development of agricultural GHG emissions in the EU. The major objective of the report is to present the improvements made in the CAPRI modelling system with respect to GHG emission accounting and especially regarding the implementation of endogenous technical mitigation options. Furthermore, the CAPRI model was applied to provide a quantitative assessment of illustrative GHG mitigation policy options in the agricultural sector, and their production and economic implications.
The project was carried out by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre.
