Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ABARE) conducts research on international agreements in greenhouse negotiations, impact of greenhouse policy on the Australian energy sector, energy implications of the greenhouse effect, and agricultural production and the reduction of greenhouse gases. The following are available from Publications, ABARE, GPO Box 1563, Canberra, ACT 2601, Australia (prices in Australian dollars):

Research Reports

UN Convention on Climate Change: Effects on Australia's Energy Sector, B.P. Jones, $5. Reprint of pp. 186-195 of the ABARE Agriculture and Resources Quarterly, June 1992. Compared to the Australian government's interim planning target for reducing greenhouse emissions, the recently completed U.N. convention calls for a smaller cut in emissions and leaves greater scope for how fast it must be achieved. These lesser targets will be less costly to achieve. Analysis of alternative targets also implies that there could be benefits from deferring some greenhouse response actions.

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the Energy Sector (RR 92.3), 72 pp., Feb. 1992, $16. Discusses the uncertainty of the costs and benefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including factors such as the nature of climate change impacts, the form of any international responses, and the scale of possible changes to the energy sector.

A Perspective on Japanese Energy Security and Greenhouse Policies, Dec. 1991, $5. Reprint of pp. 371-382, Agric. Res. Quart., 1991.

World Energy Markets and Uncertainty to the Year 2100: Implications for Greenhouse Policy (DP 91.9), 102 pp., Aug. 1991, $17. Examines possible impacts of policies directed at the energy sector on world energy markets and world economy, and consequences of a range of assumptions concerning economic growth, cooperation in policy action, and factors internal to energy markets.

Costs of Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions from the Australian Energy Sector, 1991, $8.
