The opportunity costs of reducing carbon emissions in an Amazonian agroindustrial region: the Xingu River headwaters

2008

This paper shows estimations of the annual deforestation-driven carbon emissions in the Xingu River headwaters. It also estimated the opportunity cost of maintaining forestlands using spatially-explicit rent models for soy production, cattle ranching, and sustainable timber harvest, and the baseline of 10.9 million tons of annual carbon emissions. The average annual opportunity cost of reducing carbon emissions from deforestation to nearly zero was $270 million and $23 per ton of reduced carbon emission.
