"Global economic and environmental outcome of livestock sector and climate change"
by Pena-Levano, Luis, Farzad Taheripour and Wally Tyner

The livestock sector and climate change are deeply connected, providing continuous feedbacks. Livestock contributes significantly to greenhouse gases emissions across its production chain. Variation in climate can affect pastureland as well as forest and cropland productivities raising land competition. Mitigation policies target emission reduction which may have effects on the output levels of this carbon-intensive industry. We evaluate these interactions using our new version of a computable general equilibrium entitled GTAP-BIO-FCS which is suitable for the economic analysis of mitigation policies such as carbon sequestration subsidy, carbon tax and biofuels. Our results suggest that the livestock sector is affected by climate change depending on land required for CS, the land needed for agriculture due to overall decreases in crop productivity, the imposed carbon tax rate, changes in real income and private consumption pattern, and biofuel policies.
