By geb. Goedecke, Mercedes Mende

ISBN-10: 383666237X

ISBN-13: 9783836662376

Seit Beginn landwirtschaftlicher Aktivitäten ist das Klima von größtem Interesse für Landbewirtschafter, da es das Pflanzenwachstum, die Bodenbeschaffenheit sowie die Agrarproduktion beeinflusst. Vor diesem Hintergrund richtet sich der Blick auf den Klimawandel, der allgemein ein ernstzunehmendes umweltökonomisches challenge von globalem Ausmaß darstellt. In der vorliegenden Studie wird erläutert, worin die Interdependenzen zwischen der Landwirtschaft und dem Klimawandel liegen. Auf der einen Seite ist die Landwirtschaft einer der größten Mit-Verursacher der Klimaänderung, weshalb dessen Einbindung in Klimaschutzziele längst überfällig ist. Andererseits ist die Landwirtschaft der Wirtschaftssektor, dessen Produktion am stärksten vom Klima abhängig ist. Welche Ausprägungen hat der Klimawandel bereits angenommen? Welche Treibhausgase emittiert die Landwirtschaft und in welcher Höhe? Weshalb resultieren hieraus unfavorable Externalitäten, die die Umwelt schädigen und letztlich zu Marktversagen führen? Wie kann dieses Marktversagen staatlicherseits durch umweltpolitische Maßnahmen wie Auflagen oder Zertifikate korrigiert werden? Welche Möglichkeiten haben Landwirte, die aus landwirtschaftlichen Produktionsprozessen resultierenden Emissionen zu reduzieren? Für diese und weitere Fragen zeigt das Buch Lösungsmöglichkeiten auf. Welchen Schaden die Landwirtschaft durch den Klimawandel bereits genommen hat und von welchen Klimafaktoren die zukünftige Nahrungsmittelversorgung abhängt, wird abschließend erläutert.
