Money, sunshine, and rain: Exploring the drivers of rural land values in New Zealand over time and space

We investigate the role that climate plays in determining rural land values. We estimate a Ricardian model using a national meshblock level cross section of land values. A Ricardian model stipulates that the value of...

Does money grow on trees? Mitigation under climate policy in a heterogeneous sheep-beef sector

Ruminating on   methane. Land use will change and   someone’s gotta pay.I use simulations from the Land Use in Rural New Zealand model to consider mitigation for different classes of sheep-beef farms under climate policy. Farmers...

Yield to Change: Modelling the Land-use Response to Climate-Driven Changes in Pasture Production

Yields go up – and down    at times. But farmers respond    and now we know how.    In contrast to most economic drivers of land-use change, climate-related drivers display substantial geographic variation. Accounting...

Modeling the Impact of Carbon Farming on Land Use in a New Zealand Landscape

The opportunity for private landowners to receive carbon credits from reforestation, or "carbon farming," will change the relative value of land uses for landowners, potentially having an impact on land-use decisions. We constructed a spatial...

Documentation for DOC Public Conservation Areas 2014

The Department of Conservation's Public Conservation Areas 2014, covers the spatial representation of DOC's management units defined by various acts of parliament and legislation. The attributes in this dataset are derived from the (NaPALIS) National...

A regional summary of 2012 land use

Motu completed land-use simulations for the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment in November 2013 using the Land Use in Rural New Zealand (LURNZ) model. The original model results were based on an initial land-use map...

Predicting harvestability of existing Pinus radiata stands: 2013-2030 projections of stumpage profits from pre-90 and post-89 forests

Our goal is to predict which forests are harvestable in New Zealand each year, and the stumpage profits attained from harvesting. We begin by documenting how Motu updates the 2008 Land Use in Rural New...

Land Use in Rural New Zealand: Spatial Land Use, Land-use Change, and Model Validation

Land is an important social and economic resource. Knowing the spatial distribution of land use and the expected location of future land-use change is important to inform decision makers.
This paper documents and validates the baseline...

Land-use Intensity and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the LURNZ Model

This paper documents the development of new land-use intensity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions modules for the Land Use in Rural New Zealand (LURNZ) model. These modules translate simulated land-use outcomes into measures of rural...

Finite Land Resources and Competition

This paper is part of Rethinking Global Land Use in an Urban Era, published by MIT Press in their series of Strungmann Forum Reports, which provide state-of-the-art summaries of Ernst Strungmann Forum themes. Rising demand...
