Abstract: The multicommodity agricultural model "CAPRI" is used to calculate GHG emissions induced by agricultural activities by introducing IPCC methodologies. The model (i) allows a consistent estimation of greenhouse gas emissions on the basis of official agricultural statistics from EUROSTAT, (ii) calculates endogenously regional nutrient and energy flows in agriculture, (iii) serves as a tool for assessing the impact of environmental policies, mitigation instruments and land use decisions on emissions as well as on farmer's income. In this paper specific environmental policies targeted at GHG mitigation (bio-energy crops) or water protection (manure policy) are evaluated. Moreover, other policy measures linked to the current CAP (e.g. milk quota) have an effect on land use, overall GHGs and ammonia emissions.
