IS91d assumes an eventual halt of deforestation for reasons other than climate. Above ground carbon density per hectare varies with forest type from 16 to 117 tonnes C/hectare, with soil C ranging from 68 to 100 tC/ha. However, only a portion of carbon is released over time with land conversion, depending on type of land conversion. 1 1690 1686 93 2100 2100 Source: IPCC 1992 a TPER=Total primary energy requirement, b Carbon intensity is defined as units of carbon per unit of TPER. c CFCs include CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113, CFC-114 and CFC-115.

Relaxation of these assumptions can generate models which allow recycling of tax revenue to offset completely the direct costs of abatement, even without taking into account environmental benefits (Carraro and Soubeyran 1994). Therefore, there are three components to calculating the cost of controlling CO2 at the macroeconomic level: direct welfare costs, macroeconomic impacts and revenue recycling benefits. The modelling of these macroeconomic impacts inside EGEM is detailed in Chapter 5, and full assessment of the merits of different revenue recycling methods is given in Chapter 10.

If the permits were distributed equally between each country, and the revenue cost of buying a permit exceeded the difference between the two countries’ macroeconomic abatement costs, then again no trade would occur as it would be cheaper for A to abate emissions than to buy permits. As a result of the redistribution of permits the optimum abatement levels in each country have changed, and the overall cost of reaching the target has been increased. In the most extreme case these interactions could mean that the only way to ensure least cost compliance would be to distribute the permits optimally to begin with so that no country would wish to trade based on abatement costs.
