Le secteur agricole dans les marchés du carbone ?
Mission Climat de la Caisse des Dépots, CDC, 56 rue de Lille, F-75007 Paris
Fighting against climate change in an efficient way must involve all countries, which is partly done thanks to the Kyoto protocol. At the French level, the action should involve all economic sectors and agriculture in particular. This sector can contribute by three ways: reducing directly its emissions, substituting fossil energy by biomass, and sequestrating carbon. However, in the scheme of the common agricultural policy, there is hardly an incentive or a financial remuneration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in France.
Financial benefit from emission reductions is yet already possible on carbon markets, at the international level via the Kyoto protocol and at the European level via the emissions trading system. After drawing up the inventory of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and an overview of the different carbon markets, we explain how agriculture can be involved, thanks to “domestic offset projects”.
Key words: carbon markets / climate change / domestic offset projects / greenhouse gas / agriculture
