This flagship research project of AKI aims at supporting the decision-making process through agricultural policy impact analysis. It focuses on the mid-term evaluation of the implementation of the CAP in Hungary. The simulation models used for scenario building and testing currently include the in-house developed AKI-SIM model and the CAPRI model used by the EU Commission. AKI is also an active contributor to the work of the AGMEMOD Consortium by supplying input data and providing expertise in evaluating the AGMEMOD model results.
AKI-SIM is an FADN-agent-based dynamic simulation model used for
- supporting the Ministry of Agriculture in establishing its position in relation to changes in CAP direct subsidies and market measures impacting on agricultural production structures and farm incomes,
- supplying input data for the projection of agricultural air pollutant emissions in Hungary,
- estimating the biomass potential in the main arable and livestock sectors in Hungary,
- validating the results obtained from other economic-mathematical models for Hungarian agriculture.
AKI applies the CAPRI model for supporting the Ministry of Agriculture in establishing its position in relation to changes in CAP direct subsidies and market measures, and in relation to EU free trade negotiations and agreements.
