Barriers to Adoption of No-Cost Options for Mitigation of Agricultural Emissions: A Typology

Something stops farmersMitigating emissions.Find the barriers.This typology is intended as background for assessing the existence and significance of barriers to adoption of no-cost mitigation options in agriculture. It is based on a literature review, including the...

The role of land-use change

Even if livestock agriculture could technically be achieved with extremely low emissions, and currently it cannot, other land uses may be more profitable for New Zealand farmers once the costs of greenhouse gases and excessive...

Modelling the potential impact of New Zealand’s freshwater reforms on land-based Greenhouse Gas emissions

Clean water is good    Does it reduce climate change? Alas, not that much.The National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management (NPS-FM) establishes the need to set and manage water resources within limits. This report is...

Empirical evidence on mitigation and co-benefit potential on dairy and sheep-beef farms with currently used farm practices

In 2014, the New Zealand government released the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management, largely aiming at controlling nutrient leaching across the country. What effects will this reform be likely to have on greenhouse gases?This...

Land-use Contaminant Loads and Mitigation Costs

A great deal of research has been carried out to quantify the processes, transformations and effects of contaminant loss from land to water, as well as to identify strategies to mitigate contaminant losses to freshwater...

Freshwater contaminant limit assessment of the regions

This report provides freshwater contaminant limit assessments for the regions for phosphorus, nitrogen, E. coli, and sediment. The assessments will be used for a national modelling exercise using New Zealand Forestry and Agricultural Regional Model...

New Zealand’s freshwater reforms: what are the potential impacts on greenhouse gas emissions?

Clean water is good     Does it reduce climate change?     Alas, not that much.    This report is a synthesis of results from two independent studies and was originally prepared for the...

Cool food: Agricultural emissions reduction and tech opportunities

On-farm mitigation is not enough to meet climate targets cost-effectively. Diversifying land use is valuable anyway:economic risks e.g. synthetic meat and milk; consumer pressure
climate change risks and opportunities

Cows, Sheep and Science: A Scientific Perspective on Biological Emissions from Agriculture

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...
