Broadacre agriculture is a major emitter of greenhouse gases. To improve the efficiency of climate change policies, it is important to investigate greenhouse gas mitigation costs in agriculture. This thesis evaluates greenhouse gases mitigation in Australia's broadacre agriculture and the potential benefits of carbon farming . The results indicate that, on average, reducing greenhouse gases emissions through broadacre agricultural mitigation is potentially more cost-efficient compared to other options. Under current mitigation politics in Australia, policymakers should consider providing more attractive and better targeted abatement incentives for broadacre agriculture to increase the efficiency with which outcomes are achieved.
