Ecosystem services provision in France when agriculture mitigates and adapts to climate change
Post doctoral fellow at UMR Economie Publique
In this paper we investigate the evolution of the provision of a set of ecosystem services (ES) in France under two climate change (CC) scenarios and for different levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation efforts from the agriculture sector. In order to do so, we combine the results from two sets of spatial models. The first one is composed of spatial statistical models explaining ES by the land use shares for cropland, pastures, forest, urban, and other uses. The latter are estimated by spatial econometric models accounting for: (1) farmers’ autonomous adaptation to climate change; and (2) climate change mitigation efforts by farmers attained through different levels of GHG emissions tax. Our results show that CC is on overall slightly beneficial to ES. These benefits are amplified by GHG mitigation through the increase in pastures and forests at the expense of cropland.
