Land use change between forestry and agriculture under
Land use change between forestry and agriculture under the NZ ETS Author: Yue Wang Co-authors: Stephen Poletti, Golbon Zakeri, Joon Hwan(John) Kim, Basil Sharp Motivation How does the NZ ETS effect land use change between forestry and agricultural sectors? ETS is a key pillar approach to NZ climate change Largest emissions come from agriculture, forestry sequestrate carbon and was first enter into the ETS(MPI, 2012) Model Base year: 2007 Steady-state forestry model links to the CGE NZsmall open economy 12 sectors, 5 types of land, factors (labor, capital) are mobile among sectors, land is mobile among 5 landused sectors, joint production one household, government, enterprise, investmentsavings, rest of world Four carbon tax scenarios ($0, $25, $50, $100) Sectors Land-used sectors Forestry Model is based on Sands & Kim (2009), Van Kooten et al. (1995) Select the NZ pruned without thinning radiate pine Biomass timber yield function:
: shape parameter a: rotation age Derive the optimal rotation age by maximizing foresters profit () [Steady-state: equalized annual profit] CGE production Three-level nesting, Leontief function at the top level and between domestic and imported Sector Leontief Intermediate Value-added CES Leontief Domestic Import Capital Allow substitution between value-added input Labor Land allocation Five types of land; assuming a composite land used in the sector production. The Armington substitution (CET) is allowed for land allocation Rest of world
Domestic consumption: domestic output and imported goods (CET) The exchange rate is endogenous, world price is exogenous Foreign savings are exogenous Export consumption: exported output and domestic commodities (CET) Agents Representative household: maximize utility, using the Linear expenditure system (LES) to seek the optimal level of commodity demand Government: Supply capital, collect tax from production, income, carbon emission, Leontief consumption Investment-Savings: Johanson macro-closure; exogenous investment and endogenous savings Enterprise: capital supplier Market clearing: both factor and commodity markets clear Data The National Exotic Forest Description (NEFD) (MPI, 2011) is used for estimating the shape parameters in biomass timber yield c1: 0.075316; c2: 3.227245; c3: 0.06344, convert factor 0.86 metric tons CO2-e per cubic meter of wood, pickling factor is 0 Interest rate is constant of 0.08, the initial timber price is set as the average export price of log per JAS m3 f.o.b. $187

Results are more comprehensive. Future work: Estimation of the market clear domestic carbon credit (NZU) price Appendix I (Forestry carbon payment) Forester pays liability for harvested trees but receive the return for carbon sequestration from growing trees Annual carbon sequestration payment: Carbon emission amount: Where is pickling factor, implies how much carbon would be sunk into the wood permanently; is amount of the harvested tree each year from the beginning to rotation age a. Appendix II (Timber
production) Due to the biomass timber yield function, we assume a Leontief function for timber production (). Harvested timber production is used as the intermediate for other industries (), determined by the Leontief coefficient (, , ) Appendix -equations Market clearing Commodity market: Market clearing Factor market
