"The impact of biodiversity loss reducing strategies on land use and world food markets"
by Tabeau, Andrzej, Hans van Meijl and Elke Stehfest

In a contribution to the UNEP project on The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) assessment, Ten Brink et al. (2010) has quantitatively analyzed a number of sector based options to reduce global loss of biodiversity. A first strategy in the reduction of biodiversity losses is the expanding protected areas of natural ecosystems. This reduces land available for agricultural sector and negatively influences agricultural production and food security. This paper evaluates the economic consequences of expanding protected areas and possible policy strategies that reduce the negative impact on food prices. Develop a combination of policies that reduce biodiversity losses without adversely impacting food security. The paper evaluates three possible policy options: closing the gap between actual crop yields and potential yields, improvement of agri-food commodities supply chain efficiency and shifting of consumption preferences towards low meat diet. It simulate economic consequences of these options using LEITAP model.
