  • Overview

    The specific objectives of this study are to construct and analyse the economic impacts on agriculture of the following four policy scenarios compared to a baseline in the medium term using the farm type module in CAPRI:

    • Direct Payment scenario: Analysis of the impact of moving from the historical/ hybrid Single Payment Sheme (SPS) model to a flatrate SPS model.
    • Macroeconomic environment scenario: Analysis of the impact of the economic crises and their impact on future developments of the agricultural sector.
    • Biofuel scenario: Analysis of the impact of the EU biofuel policies on biofuel demand and the resulting supply and price changes for agricultural commodities by farm types.
    • Trade liberalisation scenario: Analysis of the impact of the draft DOHA round modalities from December 2008 regarding the liberalisation of trade in agriculture on different farm types.
