About This

This bibliography is a guide to
literature on the data and modeling requirements for environmental
credit trading. Environmental credit trading is an approach to
environmental protection that uses market-based mechanisms to
efficiently allocate emission or pollutant reductions among sources
with different marginal control costs. The purpose of this
bibliography is to help people with an interest in environmental
credit trading and agriculture become better informed about the
current state of data acquisition and use of simulation models in
this emerging field.

This bibliography has two
sections. The first section contains citations to the limited
literature currently available on this topic, including data and
modeling related to wetland mitigation banking. Also included are
citations where the subject is not agriculture, but the information
in the document may have applicability to agriculture.

There are 40 citations with
abstracts (when available) in the first section. Citations were
found through literature searches of the AGRICOLA database,
produced by the National Agricultural Library, and several
commercial bibliographic databases. In addition, Water Quality
Information Center staff created citations for documents that were
located by various other means.  Documents cited were
published from 1993 through 2003.
The second section contains 65
citations with abstracts (when available) on the general topic of
environmental credit trading and related economic incentives. All
these citations are from the AGRICOLA database and cover documents
published from 1981 through 2003. Water is the primary
environmental focus of these citations.

Abstract: This paper offers an economic analysis of
economic incentives within the Habitat Conservation Plan and
Wetlands Mitigation Bank policies. Both policies are relatively new
policies for protection and restoration of ecosystems such as
wetlands that support biodiversity. The components of the policies
such as the measures of success, conversion of biological units
into economic units, and timing of the actions by policymakers and
landowners influence the incentives to carry out protection and
restoration. A stochastic optimal control model is developed which
incorporates ecological uncertainty of wetlands restoration. The
model helps in examining the decisions of how much to invest in a
wetlands mitigation bank or habitat conservation plan. The model is
calibrated with data from California bioeconomic parameters.
Numerical simulation of the model provides a sensitivity analysis
of how model parameters of restoration costs, stochastic biological
growth, discount rate, and the market value of credits affect the
trajectory of investment and the optimal stopping state of wetlands
quality when the investment ends. The analysis reveals that more
restoration will occur when there is a reduction in restoration
costs, an increase in biological uncertainty or an increase in the
value of wetlands credits. Continued restoration is harder to
justify at a higher discount rate and cost.

Abstract:  In view of increasing environmental
pressures on estuaries and wetlands, and with improved scientific
understanding, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is
working to broaden its traditional approach to the regulation of
these complex ecosystems. Specifically, the Agency is changing its
perspective on single-purpose regulatory approaches to include
multi-agency, multi-media approaches, in recognition of the roles
that air, land, and water play in the transport and fate of certain
pollutants. The Agency is also promoting the use of natural, rather
than political, boundaries, such as watersheds, as the management
framework. This change in perspective is accompanied by the use of
cooperative efforts and leveraging approaches, such as
point-nonpoint source trading, in addition to 'command and control'
regulatory approaches to achieve desired environmental effects.
This paper provides several examples of this programmatic shift in
EPA and discusses the role of science in applying environmental
management approaches. The paper concludes by exploring the
delicate relationship between science and regulatory
decision-making. The author challenges researchers and
decision-makers to work more closely together to communicate and
understand the context of management decisions for which scientific
data and information is needed and to translate this technical
knowledge into information that can be applied in coastal

Abstract: The Kyoto Protocol foresees emission
trading but does not yet specify verification of (uncertain)
emissions. This paper analyses a setting in which parties can meet
their emission targets by reducing emissions, by investing in
monitoring (reducing uncertainty of emissions) or by (bilaterally)
trading permits. We derive the optimality conditions and carry out
various numerical simulations. Our applications suggest that
including uncertainty could increase compliance costs for the USA,
Japan and the European Union. Central Europe and the Former Soviet
Union might be able to gain from trading due to higher permit
prices. Emissions trading could also lower aggregate uncertainty on

Abstract: Linear programming is applied to identify
the least cost strategy for reaching politically specified
phosphorus and total suspended solids reduction targets for the
Fox-Wolf river basin in Northeast Wisconsin. The programming model
uses data collected on annualized unit reduction costs associated
with five categories of sources of phosphorus and total suspended
solids discharge in each of the 41 subwatersheds in the basin to
determine the least cost management strategy. Results indicate
that: (1) cost-effective nutrient reduction requires careful
selection of geographic areas and source categories to address
throughout the watershed; (2) agricultural sources are the most
cost-effective to address in the basin; and (3) care should be
exercised in setting nutrient reduction targets, given that there
are likely to be significantly increasing marginal costs of
nutrient reduction; the model predicts that lowering the most
restrictive target by 33 percent would cut reduction expenditures
by about 75 percent. Policy implications of the model include
support for the investigation and potential development of
institutional arrangements that enable cost-effective nutrient
reduction activities to occur, such as the creation of an agency
with authority over a given watershed, coordinated watershed
management activities, or nutrient trading programs.

Abstract: The ability of agricultural lands to
sequester carbon from the atmosphere and help mitigate global
warming has the potential to add value to farmland through the
development of carbon-credit trading. Crucial to the creation of a
market-based carbon credit trading system is the monitoring and
verification of agricultural practices that promote carbon storage.
Using remotely sensed images for this purpose could prove more
efficient and cost-effective than traditional land-based methods.
Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) imagery and logistic
regression had >95% accuracy in verifying no-till fallow fields.
Further research is needed to investigate the potential for this
low-cost technology to assist in the monitoring and verification of
practices that sequester carbon. Development of an accurate,
low-cost, efficient means of monitoring and verifying carbon
sequestering practices will further the development of cropland
carbon credits, thus helping to mitigate global warming, and will
add value to U.S. farmland.

Notes: Publisher: Elsevier Science Inc

Computable General Equilibrium/
Global Pollution/ Greenhouse Gases/ Environmental Policy
Abstract: This paper employs a new class of
computable general-equilibrium (CGE) models, developed in the
context of energy-economy-environmental models to simulate the
impacts of the EU economy of internal and multilateral instruments
for regulation of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions. Climate change
due to emissions gases of greenhouse gases is a long-term global
environmental problem. While specific impacts on different regions
as well as their timing are yet uncertain, it is reasonable to
suppose that unilateral voluntary action by individual countries to
reduce their net emissions of GHGs is unlikely. This is because
significant reduction of net GHGs emissions by a single major net
emitter, say, for example the EU, is unlikely to substantially slow
down the rate of increase in concentration in the atmosphere
because the emissions of GHGs worldwide is increasing rapidly with
spreading industrialization. On the other hand, unilateral changes
in energy use patterns are widely perceived to have: adverse
effects on a country's economic growth, consumer welfare and trade
competitiveness. This perception is shared by both developing (DCs)
and industrialized countries (INCs). Some major policy instruments
have been assessed on the basis of experiments with the CGE model.
The use of each of the policy instrument for direct GHGs regulation
is promising. The results of the above experiments seem to show,
that first, emission standards accomplish significant decreases in
net GHGs emissions with negligible relative GDP and Welfare index
changes and without major distributional impacts in the sense of
relative changes in factor rewards. They seem to work through major
reduction in coal and natural gas use and slight overall reduction
in the use of petroleum. Second, auctioned tradeable permits also
accomplish large decreases in net GHGs emissions, with, however a
perceptible increase in the Welfare Index and significant
distributional impacts in higher rewards to land owners and labor
relative to capital owners. They appear to work primarily by
expansion to the forest sector and associated increases offsets
generation. Third, the use of a GHGs tax on positive net emissions
of GHGs by industries accomplishes large reductions in net GHGs
emissions with significant increase in GDP and the Welfare Index.
The relative changes in factor rewards are also important and favor
land owners over labor and capital owners. This instrument too
appears to work primarily through considerable expansion of the
forest sector and consequent increases offsets generation. Each of
these instruments show sufficient promise as effective policy tools
for GHGs reduction, that it would be advisable to conduct further
research in each case. The choice between standards on the one
hand. and market-based domestic regulatory instruments on the
other, is not straightforward. These results need verification
through further analysis. (C) 1998 Society for Policy Modeling.

Abstract: The application of a link-node model in
modeling hydrodynamics of wetland areas related to flood detention
design is presented through the description of modeling and design
efforts of an actual project, the first privately-owned wetland
mitigation bank in Florida. The 142-ha project is located in the
Chapel Trail Preserve of the City of Pembroke Pines, South Florida,
where a degraded site is transformed into a healthy,
self-sustaining wetland ecosystem. Creation of the wetlands,
located adjacent to an existing development, required careful
evaluation of drainage conditions. To properly design the wetland
site, a hydrodynamic model was developed which allowed sizing of
hydraulic structures and computation of maximum water surface
elevations. The paper presents model description and calibration
using field data, parameter sensitivity, general application in the
project and use as a design tool. The model was found to be a
valuable tool that can be applied in similar projects.

Abstract: The Trinity River Mitigation Bank was
proposed to develop and use a mature, contiguous, diverse riparian
corridor along the West Fork of the Trinity River near Dallas,
Texas, USA. In the proposed wetland design, water would be diverted
from Walker Creek as necessary to maintain wetland function.
Therefore, assessment of the magnitude and continuity of the flow
from Walker Creek was paramount to successful wetland operation.
The Soil and Water Assessment (SWAT) model was used to assess
whether the sustained flow (storm flow and base flow) from the
Walker Creek Basin could maintain the proposed bottomland wetland
ecosystem. For this study, SWAT was modified to allow ponded water
within the prescribed wetland to interact with the soil profile and
the shallow aquifer. The water budget was prepared for the wetland
based on a three-step process. First, data required to run the
model on Walker Creek, including soils, topographic, land-use, and
daily weather data were assembled. Next, data required to validate
the model were obtained. Since stream flow was not available at the
proposed site, flow from a nearby watershed with similar soils,
land use and topography were used. In the final step, the model was
run for 14 years and compared to the measured water balance at the
nearby watershed. The model results indicate that the wetland
should be at or above 85 percent capacity over 60 percent of the
time. The wetland did not dry up during the entire simulated time
period (14 years) and reached 40 percent capacity less than one
percent of the time during the simulation period. The advantages of
the continuous simulation approach used in this study include (1)
validation of wetland function (hydroperiod, soil water storage,
plant water uptake) over a range of climatic conditions and (2) the
ability to assess the long-term impact of land-use and management

Abstract: Increasing competition for water across
sectors increases the importance of the river basin as the
appropriate unit of analysis to address the challenges facing water
resources management; and modeling at this scale can provide
essential information for policymakers in their resource allocation
decisions. This paper introduces an integrated economic-hydrologic
modeling framework that accounts for the interactions between water
allocation, farmer input choice, agricultural productivity,
non-agricultural water demand, and resource degradation in order to
estimate the social and economic gains from improvement in the
allocation and efficiency of water use. The model is applied to the
Maipo river basin in Chile. Economic benefits to water use are
evaluated for different demand management instruments, including
markets in tradable water rights, based on production and benefit
functions with respect to water for the agricultural and
urban-industrial sectors.

This article provides a theoretical

mechanisms to reduce nonpoint source agricultural nutrient
pollution, including an excess nutrient tax; off-site animal waste
disposal subsidy; animal waste transport subsidy; compost subsidy;
and nutrient permit trading system. Market incentives have
theoretical appeal in that, if set at the proper level, they compel
polluters to reduce pollution generation to the socially efficient
level automatically. However, each market-based mechanism has
associated implementational factors which must be overcome. The
implementation discussion highlights the basic information,
monitoring, enforcement, and political requirements concerning each
of the policies. In addition, market inefficiencies may reduce the
practical effectiveness of market-based incentives. In cases where
informational and other inefficiencies are high, alternative
approaches (such as market surveys and nutrient management
education) aimed at reducing those inefficiencies may be

Industrial Emissions/
Comparability/ Monitoring/ Data Production Chain
Abstract: Emissions from industrial installations
are regulated under several international conventions and
directives to prevent harmful impacts on environment and human
health. Stricter limitations often exist in national legislations,
or due to regional and local conditions, than in the international
conventions. The international comparability of emission data from
industrial installations is currently poor. Comparability is an
essential element when the environmental performance of different
installations or techniques is studied, as well as in reviewing
data presented in emission registers. The availability of reliable
and comparable data is an important requirement for the emissions
trading market. Comparable emission data ought to be used when
reviewing compliance with the national emission reduction targets
established under international conventions, as well as in
reviewing the compliance of industrial installations with the
requirements set in the environmental permit conditions. There are
currently no internationally agreed principles or a comprehensive
strategy for production of emission data at the level of an
industrial installation. The data production chain principle
presented in this paper provides a tool for identifying elements
that are essential in comparing emission data correctly and that
need to be taken into consideration to ensure emission data
reliability. The method was originally developed and applied in
Finland for emission and impact monitoring of wastewaters from
industrial installations and fisheries. Due to the implementation
of the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) directive
the methodology was reconstructed for integrated emissions
monitoring purposes. The data production principle was
introduced for European use when
preparing the BREF document on monitoring of emissions. It will
also be relevant when the industrial installations report their
emissions data to the Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers
(PRTRs). (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights

Non Point Source Pollution/ Point
Non Point Effluent Trading/ Watershed/ Uncertainty/ Pollution
Abatement/ Water Quality/ Nonpoint/ Wetlands/ Cost
Abstract: In the past decades, little abatement
efforts have been implemented on China's non-point source water
pollution, and studies aiming at non-point sources regulation were
also rare; Watershed abatement trading between point and non-point
sources may serve as a cost-effective way to deal with the problem.
The inherent uncertainty of non-point emissions, however, could
affect the feasibility and outcome of point-non-point effluent
trading. The purpose of this paper is to model the watershed
point-non-point abatement trading incorporating the uncertainty of
non-point source emissions, and to examine its impacts on trading
equilibrium and trading ratio. The uncertainties of non-point
emissions were taken into consideration by setting an acceptable
probability by which the watershed emission constraints were
achieved. Using the watershed optimization model, the optimal
abatement allocation and trading ratio were explicitly illustrated.
It was found that they were affected significantly by the variances
of non-point emissions, the reliability requirement assigned to the
non-point abatement, and the marginal abatement costs of point and
non-point sources. Since the variances of non-point emissions may
increase or decrease at the abatement level, the impacts of these
factors were discussed in different circumstances. Based on the
illumination of the trading model, future directions and
implications of point-non-point trading in China were discussed.

Abstract: The US Clean Air Act Amendments require
PM10 transportation conformity and attainment demonstrations. This
study examines the policy implications and validity of a proposed
PM10 transportation conformity method called equivalent emissions
(EE) that uses a linear, non-chemical model to incorporate
emissions trading into PM10 transportation conformity
determinations. We evaluate the new method by comparing predictions
from EE to predictions from a mechanistic air quality model that
uses non-linear chemical mechanisms to calculate the formation of
secondary PM10. Results indicate that the EE method over estimates
reductions of secondary PM10 formation allowing the primary
fraction to rise while secondary PM10 is not actually declining in
the atmosphere. Thus, conformity could be established between air
quality and transportation plans using EE, resulting in projects
being funded that might prolong public exposure to unhealthy levels
of PM10 depending on the specifics of the non-attainment area. (C)

Abstract: In programs for trading pollution
abatement between point and nonpoint sources, the trading ratio
specifies the rate at which nonpoint source abatement can be
substituted for point source abatement. The appropriate value of
this ratio is unclear because of qualitative differences between
the two classes of sources. To identify the optimal trading ratio,
we develop and analyze a model of point/nonpoint trading. We find
the optimal trading ratio depends on the relative costs of
enforcing point versus nonpoint reductions and on the uncertainty
associated with nonpoint loadings. The uncertainty does not imply a
lower bound for the optimal trading ratio.

Abstract: A complete carbon (C) accounting model
for forest systems, GRC3, links a C tracking model (CAMFor) with
independently verified models of forest growth (3PG), litter
decomposition (GENDEC) and soil C turnover (RothC). GRC3 was tested
in seven regional case studies of eucalypt or Pinus radiata
plantations in Australia to predict rates of change in soil C after
afforestation and to determine controlling factors. The model was
calibrated as far as possible to above-ground growth of
plantations, litterfall, accumulation of litter and in some cases
root biomass, and was then run to determine expected change in soil
C. Between 0 and 10 years soil C was predicted to decrease by an
average of 1.7% per year (0.79tCha super(-1) per year) and between
10 and 40 years it was predicted to increase by 0.82% per year
(0.46tCha super(-1) per year). The mean rate of change after 40
years was 0.09% per year (0.06tCha super(-1) per year). These
values and pattern of change were consistent with a recent review
of the global literature of change in soil C after afforestation
[For. Ecol. Manage. (2002a)]. Modelling analyses suggests the main
reasons for this pattern are: (i) initially, there are limited
inputs of C to soil as plantation net primary production (NPP) is
small and goes to building biomass. Residues from the previous crop
decompose leading to net loss of C unless a groundcover (intercrop
or weeds) is maintained in the inter-rows, (ii) much of the
plantation NPP is allocated to long-lived woody components (stems,
branches, and coarse roots), which are temporarily or permanently
(by harvesting) removed from the soil C cycle, and (iii) as the
stand develops, inputs from the more lignified, resistant material
increases. The amount of input may be less under plantation than
pasture but the quality of residues is the over-riding factor and
in the long-term soil C accumulates. Actual trends in soil C may
vary according to site and management conditions, but the main
controlling factors will be different between pasture and
plantation in the amount and allocation of NPP, and the quantity
and quality of residue inputs to soil. Sensitivity (Monte Carlo)
analyses showed that model parameters and processes for which it
will be important to have good estimates include the amount of NPP
and its allocation to various plant components, rate constants for
decomposition of litter and root residues, the proportion of C lost
to respiration during decomposition of litter and soil C, and rate
constants for humification (the proportion of decomposing
above-ground litter that is transferred to soil). Changes in soil C
were small compared with other forest pools and fluxes-after 40
years of afforestation less than 3% of the cumulative NPP was
predicted to accumulate in soil. It is debatable whether it will be
feasible or cost-effective to directly measure change in soil C
over short-time frames (such as 5 years) for the purpose of
claiming C credits under an emissions trading scheme. Modelling
provides a useful alternative and at the very least can be used to
identify sites and time frames where investment in soil C
measurement may be warranted.

Abstract: This paper offers the first economic
analysis of wetlands mitigation banks. The banks are a new
alternative for restoration of wetlands by developers before
receiving regulatory approval for future development of wetlands in
the same watershed. A stochastic optimal control model is developed
which incorporates ecological uncertainty of wetlands restoration.
The model helps in examining the decisions of how much to invest in
a wetlands mitigation bank. The model is calibrated with data from
California bioeconomic parameters. Numerical simulation of the
model provides a sensitivity analysis of how model parameters of
restoration costs, stochastic biological growth, interest rate, and
the market value of credits affect the trajectory of investment and
the optimal stopping state of wetlands quality when the investment
ends. The analysis reveals that restoration of the whole site will
occur when there is a reduction in restoration costs, an increase
in biological uncertainty or an increase in the value of wetlands
credits. Continued restoration is harder to justify with a
interest rate.

Abstract: A credible and cost-effective methodology
is needed to support the use of new tree plantations to offset
greenhouse gas emissions, and ultimately to form part of an
emissions trading scheme. A number of validated models of forest
growth are available. However, there has been relatively little
validation of models to predict changes in pools of C in litter and
soil, and thus suitable for C accounting. A modelling approach is
needed to track changes in soil C because direct measurements are
currently cost-prohibitive. Modelling approaches also allow for
scenario analyses that can be useful for planning purposes. We used
a complete C accounting model for forests, GRC3, to simulate
patterns of change in soil C following afforestation under four
test cases representing typical conditions in Australia. Soil C was
predicted to initially decrease (usually during the first 10 years)
before a gradual recovery and accumulation of soil C occurred.
Sensitivity analyses were used to determine which parameters and
inputs potentially cause the greatest uncertainty in calculated
change in soil C using GRC3. Taking into account the uncertainties
in the values of parameters and inputs, initial (0-10 years)
decrease in soil C was predicted to be 0.96-2.35% per year (or
4.16-14.8 t C ha super(-1)) with a standard deviation between 0.10
and 0.43% per year among case studies, whereas the predicted
increase in soil C (10-40 years) was predicted to be between 0.49
and 1.80% per year (or 7.57-24.4 t C ha super(-1)) with a standard
deviation between 0.18 and 0.69% per year. Results indicated that
uncertainty could be greatly reduced by calibration of the fraction
of above-ground litter transferred to soil C (i.e. humification),
fraction of C lost by respiration during decomposition of litter,
dead roots and soil C, and decomposition rates of the soil C pools.
It was also important to obtain accurate input data for initial
soil C content (including inert soil C), climatic conditions and
allocation of net primary production to various tree

Transferable Discharge Permits/
Nonpoint Source Pollution/ Water Policy/ Regulation/ Decision
Making/ Water Quality/ Pollution Control/ Permits/ Externality/
Abstract: The use of transferable discharge permits
in water pollution, what we will call water quality trading (WQT),
is rapidly growing in the U.S. This paper reviews the current
status of WQT nationally and discusses the structures of the
markets that have been formed. Four main structures are observed in
such markets: exchanges, bilateral negotiations, clearinghouses,
and sole source offsets. The goals of a WQT program are
environmental quality and cost effectiveness. In designing a WQT
market, policy makers are constrained by legal restrictions and the
physical characteristics of the pollution problem. The choices that
must be made include how trading will be authorized, monitored and
enforced. How these questions are answered will help determine both
the extent to which these goals are achieved, and the market
structures that can arise. After discussing the characteristics of
different market structures, we evaluate how this framework applies

Theory/ Environmental Economics/ Incentives/ Enforcement and
Abstract: It is technically difficult and costly to
monitor nonpoint source pollution. Consequently, most economic
instruments directed towards reducing this type of pollution have
focused on circumventing the monitoring problem by focusing on
readily observable factors. Such instruments include taxes or
tradable pen-nits on inputs or other incentives to induce changes
in fanning practices. One difficulty with such approaches is that
the incentives may not be consistent with the primary objectives of
the policies-to reduce nutrient runoffs. This paper seeks to
identify under what conditions it would be beneficial to apply more
direct incentives for reduced nutrient runoffs. Monitoring and
enforcement are core issues in this connection. It is still
difficult to monitor individual farm field runoffs. Hence, the
incentive problems associated with multiple agents emitting to the
same recipient need to be resolved. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V All

Abstract: The main goal of this study is to
evaluate the eutrophication status under different management
approaches in a basin, by combining the Biwa3D model
(three-dimensional eutrophication analysis model) with several
nutrient-reduction cases to calculate their effects on the water
quality in Lake Biwa, Japan, and by applying the model to evaluate
the cost-effectiveness between different scenarios designed to
control eutrophication. A non-hydrostatic hydrodynamic model
featuring very large eddy simulation (VLES) concepts, combined with
ecological components that consider three types of phytoplankton
species, one zooplankton, and nutrient cycling in each grid, is
developed as the basic component of the research. Nitrogen and
phosphorus loads from I I I sub-basins that supply Lake Biwa are
set as the boundary condition for the numerical simulation. The
chlorophyll a concentration calculated near the water intake,
weighted in proportion to the intake discharge, is set as the water
quality index. Transferable discharge permits are introduced for
estimating the total reduction cost for achieving the objective
water quality. Two types of scenario are tested: one considers the
difference in location of nutrient reduction in the north and south
basins, and the other ignores this difference. Initially, the
effect of nutrient loads on the water quality of Lake Biwa was
calculated using the Biwa3D model, using estimated nitrogen and
phosphorus loads from the basin as the boundary condition.
Transferable discharge permits were then designed according to the
impact factor on each basin calculated by the model in order to
compare the cost-effectiveness of the reduction scenarios. It is
concluded that consideration of the characteristics of each basin
and the distribution of effluent in designing transferable
discharge permits reduces the total costs by around 4-25% of that
required for achieving the target concentration of chlorophyll a.

Abstract: A discharge permit system for water
pollution of the upper Nanpan River has been tested since 1992.
This paper proposed the shift of the current non-tradable permits
to tradable permits to attain the same pollution reduction targets
at a lower cost. It was found that this river appeared good for
trading. A pilot trading program for point sources was then
recommended to a smaller trading zone. There would be ten potential
trades for chemical oxygen demand discharge, gaining an annual
cost-saving of Chinese Yuan 2.4 million, or saving 18.4% of the
total annual cost to attain the reduction target without trading.
The marginal pollution reduction cost was estimated at Chinese Yuan
959 for one kilogram chemical oxygen demand per day. Meanwhile,
'without trading' and 'with trading' scenarios would bring about
900.9 kg/day and 51.5 kg/day of redundant reduction respectively.
The net annual benefit arising from trading, about Chinese Yuan 1.6
million, would still be significant. At last, the study recommended
that compliance monitoring and executing institution requirements
be kept in mind while designing the program. An information system
needs to be established to provide potential participants relevant
information. The method of permit allocation and lifespan of
permits should also be addressed later.

Abstract: Market-type mechanisms have been
introduced and are being explored for various environmental
programs. Several existing programs, however, have not attained the
cost savings that were initially projected. Modeling that
acknowledges the role of transactions costs and the discrete,
bilateral, and sequential manner in which trades are executed
should provide a more realistic basis for calculating potential
cost savings. This paper presents empirical evidence on potential
cost savings by examining a market for the abatement of sediment
from farmland. Empirical results based on a market simulation model
find no statistically significant change in mean abatement costs
under several transaction cost levels when contracts are randomly
executed. An alternative method of contract execution, gain-ranked,
yields similar results. At the highest transaction cost level
studied, trading reduces the total cost of compliance relative to a
uniform standard that reflects current regulations. (C) 2001

Abstract: In addition to improving the allocative
efficiency of water use, water markets may reduce
irrigation-related water quality problems. This potential benefit
is examined with a nonlinear programming model developed to
simulate agricultural decision-making in a drainage problem area in
California's San Joaquin Valley. Results indicate that a 30%
drainage goal is achievable through improvements in irrigation
practices and changes in cropping patterns induced by a water
market. Although water markets will not generally achieve a
least-cost solution, they may be a practical alternative to
economically efficient, but informationally intensive,
environmental policies such as Pigouvian taxes.

Abstract: The Electric Power Research Institute has
launched a research project to develop a conceptual risk analysis
framework for watershed management of point and nonpoint source
pollution. The research leads to the design of an engineering model
to 1) process and translate water quality data (coliform, BOD, DO,
suspended solids, temperature, sediment, etc.) into decision
variables (suitability for water contact sports and swimming, fish
spawning, fish survival, human consumption of fish, and freedom
from algal nuisance, etc.) and 2) predict water quality
improvements from proposed management alternatives. Actual
development of the model is being carried out with the Tennessee
Valley Authority (TVA) for the Holston River watershed. The effort
includes model construction by importation of GIS map files,
stringing together existing watershed and reservoir models,
calibration of the model, and selection of decision variables and
water quality check points. The model calculates hydrology, waste
load, water quality and suitability of fish habitats at headwaters.
The base case results and improvements after best management
alternatives will be compared to the data
observed by TVA's River Action
Team. The final product will be a user friendly tool that
stakeholders can use to find a cost effective method of improving
water quality, including market-based pollution trading.

point/nonpoint trading ratio-the rate point source controls trade
for nonpoint controls-is adjusted downward (a risk reward for
nonpoint controls), encouraging more nonpoint controls. However, in
actual trading programs, ratios are adjusted upward in response to
nonpoint uncertainties (a risk premium for nonpoint controls). This
contradiction is explained using a public choice model in which
regulators focus on encouraging abatement instead of reducing
damages. The result is a divergence of public and social risk
perceptions, and a trading market that encourages economically
suboptimal nonpoint controls.

environmental legislation/ incentives/ economic policy/ Clean Water
Abstract: The limited success of
command-and-control policies for reducing nonpoint source (NPS)
water pollution mandated under the Federal Water Pollution Control
Act (FWPCA) has prompted increased interest in economic incentive
policies as an alternative control mechanism. A variety of measures
have been proposed ranging from fairly minor modifications of
existing policies to substantial revisions including watershed-wide
polices that rely on economic incentives. While greater use of
economic incentive policies, such as environmental bonds and
point/nonpoint source trading is being advocated in the
reauthorization of the CWA, the expected effects of individual
proposals will be modest. The characteristics of NPS pollution,
namely uncertainty and asymmetrical information, underscores that
there is no single, ideal policy instrument for controlling the
many types of agricultural NPS water pollution. Some of the usual
incentive-based policies, such as effluent taxes, are not well
suited to the task. Individual incentive policies proposed for the
reauthorized CWA, such as pollution trading or deposit/refund
systems, are not broadly applicable for heterogeneous pollution
situations. Economic incentive policies may be appropriate in some
cases, and command-and-control policies will be preferable in
others and may in fact complement incentive policies.

Abstract: Under the conservation-compliance
program, most of the individual producers are forced to cut their
soil erosion to 7 t per acre annually irrespective of the marginal
cost of controlling soil erosion. In a system where coupons to a
ton of soil loss were issued to producers and traded, the marginal
cost of controlling soil loss within each soil type and across
different soil types would be equalized. An instrumental variable
procedure was used to determine the effect of soil erosion on net
profits. The results for Iowa show that there is considerable
difference in the marginal opportunity cost of controlling soil
erosion between soil types. By assigning one ton of erosion to Iowa
soil type Downs (5-10% slope) instead of Clarion (2-5% slope),
there is a savings of $5.00 per acre for the society as a whole.
The tradable coupon system is not only efficient, but will also
bring in more land under soil conservation.

Abstract: A recent focus of water quality policy
discussions has been the trading of pollution abatement between
point and nonpoint sources. Point-nonpoint trading would allow
point sources to sponsor nonpoint source controls rather than
install further controls of their own. If nonpoint source loadings
are significant and the marginal costs of their control are lower
than for additional point source controls, water quality goals
could be met at lower cost with trading. We isolate difficulties
particular to incentive policies such as point-nonpoint trading and
then screen coastal watersheds for those satisfying conditions that
play a major role in determining whether trading can improve water
quality. We follow the recent Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization
Amendments in emphasizing agriculture, the single largest cause of
nonpoint source pollution. Our screening analysis provides an
initial, empirical assessment of the feasibility of trading for
managing agricultural land use to protect coastal water quality. We
also illustrate the additional analysis required to quantify the
potential for successful trading in those watersheds which meet our
screening criteria.

Abstract: Pollution from agriculture remains one of
the United States' most vexing water pollution problems.
Conventional wisdom asserts that agricultural pollution control is
best accomplished using voluntary 'Best Management Practices', and
that quantitative discharge limits and economic incentives are
impractical. Recent experience in California demonstrates
otherwise. Here, quantitative limits on selenium discharges have
been imposed on a regional consortium of farm districts. The
consortium has developed a relatively streamlined institutional
system that uses tradable discharge permits to enforce the limits.
Individual districts use tiered water pricing and other mechanisms
to control discharges. Agricultural pollution from the region has

Abstract: One of the principal stumbling blocks to
regulatory agencies' adopting pollutant trading schemes is the
complex of uncertainties surrounding any change in institutions.
This is especially true if nonpoint pollution sources are to be
involved along with point sources. Regulators are understandably
reluctant to switch from tried-and-true point source permit
systems, even if trading schemes can be shown (on paper, at least)
to result in lower public expenditures. We propose a set of
practical criteria for point- nonpoint pollutant trading systems
that promise to increase regulators' confidence that the new system
will be equally effective in controlling pollution and at the same
time more likely to capture efficiencies in pollution reduction

Abstract: In this paper, we review the physical
characteristics of agricultural nonpoint pollution and discuss the
implications for setting appropriate pollution control objectives
and designing incentive-based pollution control policies. First, we
discuss that policy objectives must be designed carefully to ensure
positive economic net benefits can be expected from pollution
control. Next, we review several classes of incentives and
recommend the use of design-based incentives (i.e., incentives
based on variable input use, management practices, and land use)
for controlling nonpoint pollution. Cost-effectiveness requires
that incentives elicit three types of responses from farmers: (1)
use variable inputs at appropriate levels, (2) adopt appropriate
management practices, and (3) make appropriate land use decisions
at the extensive margin of production. If a set of incentives fails
to induce the correct responses, the resulting runoff levels and
hence ambient pollution levels and damages will be too large
relative to policy goals. A review of existing programs suggests
that greater program coordination and improved targeting of
incentives are needed for further water quality improvements.
Alternatively, properly designed market-based systems may be
effective alternatives. These systems would reduce overall
pollution control costs by allowing markets to allocate point
source and nonpoint source control costs more

Abstract: Education is often used to provide
producers with information on how to operate more efficiently with
current technologies or on profitable new technologies that
generate less pollution. While such "win-win" solutions to water
quality problems are attractive, we use a simple economic framework
to show that education cannot be considered a strong tool for water
quality protection. Its success depends on a number of factors
related to profitability and altruism, and "win-win" solutions are
not always guaranteed, even when they appear to exist. Evidence
suggests that net returns are the chief concern of producers when
they adopt alternative management practices.

variation/ simulation models/ mathematical models/ Texas/ pollution
Abstract: A pollution offset system is a discharge
permit system in which transfers are made subject to a restriction
that no violations of water quality standards occur at any
location. Simulation of a pollution offset system with seasonal
variation and multiple pollutants allows for comparison of the
savings possible from these design features. A simulation model
(Qual-TX) developed by the Texas Water Commission is applied to a
case study region near Austin, Texas, yielding impact coefficients
for an economic optimization model without investment whose least
cost solution represents the theoretical equilibrium of a pollution
offset system. The optimization model finds short-run savings of
17.5% for a pollution offset system, as compared to a command and
control policy that would also achieve the dissolved oxygen
standard. Seasonal variation in permit design produces minimal
effects; virtually all savings come from allowing pollution offsets
for the two different pollutants.

Abstract: Assessment of watershed ecological status
and trends is challenging for managers who lack randomly or
consistently sampled data, or monitoring programs developed from a
watershed perspective. This study investigated analytical
approaches for assessment of status and trends using data collected
by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency as part of state
requirements for reporting stream quality and managing discharge
permits. Fish and benthic macroinvertebrate metrics collected
during three time periods (1979-1981, 1986-1989, 1990-1993) were
analyzed for the mainstem of Big Darby Creek, a high-quality
warm-water stream in central Ohio, USA. Analysis of variance of
transformed metrics showed significant differences among time
periods for six fish metrics. In addition, significant positive
linear trends were observed for four metrics plus the index of
biotic integrity score, and negative linear trends for two fish
metrics. An analysis of a subset of sites paired by location and
sampled over the three periods reflected findings using all
available data for the mainstem. In particular, mean estimates were
very similar between the reduced and full data sets, whereas
standard error estimates were much greater in the reduced subset.
Analysis of serial autocorrelation patterns among the fish metrics
over the three time periods suggests changes in the nature of
stressors over time. A comparison within the most recent time
period showed significantly better condition for Big Darby mainstem
than for Hellbranch Run (the easternmost subwatershed), after
adjusting for watershed size. The consistency of paired and
nonrandomized results suggested that either type of data might be
judiciously used for this watershed assessment. Results indicated
that overall biological condition of the mainstem of the Big Darby
Creek watershed has significantly improved since the early
