Common Agricultural Policy
- The Rural Development Dimension
This four year project under the 7th framework program, undertaken by a consortium of 10 research organisations from 7 EU countries and Turkey, is concerned with the development and application of a tool for policy impact assessment of the Common Agricultural Policy and general Rural Development policies.
- Small to medium-scale focused research project
under the EU Seventh Framework Programme
The tool, in its final version covering the whole EU and all candidate and potential candidates countries, links the economic model CAPRI, covering agriculture, with Computable General Equilibrium models building on RegFin, covering all economic sectors. Their results, downscaled to 1km x 1km grid cells, drive bio-physical models and environmental indicator calculators.
The tool will inform policy makers and the public in ex-post and ex-ante impact assessments about consequences of changes in the Common Agricultural Policy based on a wide range of economic, social and environmental indicators.
