This report provides updated projections of key agricultural activity levels which when applied to the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (DCCEE) emissions spreadsheets give projections of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions in each year from 2009 to 2030.

It provides an update to previous projection rounds taken by the Centre for International Economics (CIE) for the then Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) and DCCEE in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2008. Like previous rounds, this report uses three economic models of Australian agriculture:

  • The Global Meat Industries (GMI) model;
  • The CIE Grain model; and
  • The CIE Dairy model.
