Modelling CAP Decoupling in the EU : A Comparison of Selected Simulation Models and Results

  title={Modelling CAP Decoupling in the EU : A Comparison of Selected Simulation Models and Results},
  author={Oliver Balkhausen and Martin Banse and Harald Grethe},
This article reviews ways of representing the effects of decoupling in the European Union (EU) on land allocation and production in eight selected simulation models (AGLINK, AG-MEMOD, CAPRI, CAPSIM, ESIM, FAPRI, GOAL and GTAP). It then compares the simulated effects of decoupling and traces them back to the model specifications and parameter assumptions. In particular, roughage is not included in most models, so that changes in ruminant production are not necessarily consistent with the changes… CONTINUE READING
