CAP Payments And Agricultural GHG Emissions In Italy. A Farm-level Assessment

This paper investigates the possible role played by the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) Fischler Reform on the agricultural GHG emissions at the farm level. The empirical analysis concerns a balanced panel of Italian Farm Accountancy Data Network farms observed over years 2003-2007. Multinomial Logit models are estimated in sequence to express how the farm level emissions (and the respective production choices) vary over time also in response to CAP expenditure. Results suggest that CAP expenditure had a role in the evolution of the farm-level emissions, though the direction of this effect may differ across farms and deserves further investigation.
