Abstract: A rational negotiation strategy for coming multilateral negotiations regarding climate change requires knowledge about possible social, economic and environmental effects of policy instruments for greenhouse gas emission abatement. With this purpose the existing CAPRI modelling framework for the European Agricultural Sector is expanded to cover greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural sources and policy instruments for their abatement. This modelling approach is based on the application of a permit trade scheme for emission abatement compared within the Kyoto Protocol ¿first commitment¿ baseline. The effects derived of three alternative schemes are described in detail: the EU ¿burden sharing¿ agreement option defined as regional standards, permit trade between regions inside each Member States, and finally, permit trade between regions at EU level. The analysis shows the importance of selecting an adequate combination of instruments of emission abatement for the design of efficient emission reduction policies.
