"Agricultural impacts of reduced tropical deforestation"
by Rose, Steven, Alla Golub, Brent Sohngen and Thomas Hertel

Reducing carbon emissions by avoiding deforestation (RED) has been estimated to have large greenhouse gas (GHG) abatement potential, and could be especially valuable as a near-term abatement strategy in managing the long-run costs of attaining climate change objectives. International negotiations regarding land-use, and land-use change related emissions have increasingly focused attention on RED, and in particular countries with high rates of deforestation. However, RED will be challenging to implement. Much of this complexity derives from the fact that agricultural production is a primary driver for tropical deforestation, and the implementation of RED in one region, may transmit to other areas of the world through endogenous impacts on agricultural prices and land returns. To date, there has been little discussion, and next to no analysis, of this issue in the policy debate. Agricultural implications of RED are not well understood. This paper estimates the implications of efforts to reduce GHG emissions through reduced deforestation, and seeks to quantify the associated uncertainties.
