Agriculture and Forestry

This research program analyzes the conditions of use of economic instruments dedicated to climate change issues in the agricultural and forestry sectors. Particular attention is paid to the mechanisms of REDD + and the competition for biomass use.

Our research topics

  • Cost of emission reductions in the agricultural sector
  • Low-carbon innovations and risks in the agricultural sector
  • Multi-criteria evaluation of forestry projects
  • Forest transition analysis
  • Biomass resources evaluation

Our team

  • Philippe Delacote: Head of the Research Program
  • Etienne Lorang: Research Fellow on « Circular Economy, recycling and CO2 emissions »
  • Maxime Ollier: Research Fellow on « Climate change effects on inequalities of farmers’ income »
  • Camille Tevenart: Research Fellow on  « Barriers to GES emissions mitigation in the French agricultural sector: the role of uncertainty, information and risk attitudes »
